    This activity is really worth to join. My friends and I went to the glacier by helicopter with super nice weather. Stretch,our guide, is really really nice. He told us the background of glacier and bring us to the features to take many fabulous photos. He checked every single details to make sure we are safe. He is really nice.

What To Expect

The Flying Fox Heli Hike Tour is the perfect combination of thrill and excitement as you ride a helicopter over the the beautiful expenses of New Zealand nature and walk on the Fox Glacier. Get an exclusive view of the Victoria Falls, which is the melted river of the hidden Victoria Glacier. By taking a helicopter to your starting destination, you can access and explore a part of the glacier that is not touched by the public and where nature works hardest to create spectacular ice caves and arches. As you hike, learn about the mighty river of ice that runs 12km from New Zealand's highest peaks to the rainforest below. No tour is the same, with each guide exploring different areas of the glacier and its many changing features.

    That was a unbelievable experience And I would never forget that moment Love my guide and pilot Thank you all guys so much
  • WEI SHAN 17 Sep 2018
    Prompt confirmation received within 24hrs. Everything was as described. We only had to produce the booking confirmation at the ticket counter to exchange for our tickets. KLOOK proves to be really convenient and it is cheaper than purchasing over the counter. The weather was great and we managed to complete the chopper ride and the glacier hike within the stipulated time.

    Amazing views of the glacier, highlight of our trip! The trip is very weather dependent so make sure you leave a few days extra for this. Guides were friendly helpful and knowledgeable too.

    Is a very nice experience on my first Heli Ride & Glacier Hike
  • HO 24 Jul 2018
    Due to bad weather on the actual date, we choose to try our luck on next day. Finally we had chance to walk at the glacier. So happy and excited!!!

    Stunning view and memorable experience! Must do activity in fox glacier, but walking on the ice is not suggested for elderly and children.
