The Fox Glacier Heli Hike combines the excitement of walking on world-famous Fox Glacier with the thrill of a helicopter flight.
Once equipped with all your glacier hiking equipment, you'll board the helicopter for a flight over the lower part of fox glacier where the ice is in constant motion. You will fly to the higher part of the glacier where you'll access and explore a part of the glacier which is home to spectacular ice caves and arches.
Your landing site is remote and exceptionally beautiful part of the glacier at 800 metres above sea level. Then strap on your crampons, and follow your guide who will lead you through amazing formations, whilst clearing the path to facilitate your hike.
Each outing offers something new, as the glacier is ever moving, so no two trips are the same. The length of your adventure will determine how deep you go into the glacier, this extreme option allows you to explore new undiscovered areas and is one for the adventurer.
Please note that this is a natural and ever-changing environment. Ice features change constantly and no guarantee can be given that specific features will be seen. This is a weather dependent trip.
Fox Glacier Guiding make sure the groups are small with a maximum guide to customer ratio of 1:4 for the extreme adventure.
