Franz Josef

The Franz Josef Glacier helicopter tour is a once in a lifetime experience that should not be missed. From the moment you step on board our chopper, your experience and highly trained pilot will whisk you away, up and over the jaw-dropping landscape.

After a thrilling flight, high above the rugged terrain, you will land on the glacier, ready to undertake a two hour guided glacier hike. Your friendly guide will lead you through some of the most pristine and awe-inspiring glacier scenery in the world. He will choose your route carefully as you go and, with an eye for the most spectacular ice formations, you'll soon be making your way through an extraordinary land of towering peaks and glistening blue ice.

You'll enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, and with plenty of photo opportunities, and the chance to learn more about this magnificent glacier, this will almost certainly be your most memorable New Zealand experience and one you will remember forever.

Afterwards, warm up in the Main Pools at the fabulous Glacier Hot Pools!

Sometimes even the best prepared plans don't work out, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. If your trip is cancelled due to weather, you will be transferred onto the Glacier Valley Walk the same day. There is no obligation to participate, and should you need to, you can cancel at any time. We just want to make sure you don't miss out on a great glacier experience.
