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.

    Such an unique experience to take a helicopter and land on the glacier. We were told it is rare to have snow on the icy glacier. Hike was fun, climbed through crevices and slided down some ice slopes.

    It’s such a special experience to walk on the glacier. The guide is really nice and bring us to some awesome spot for the great pictures. Highly recommended for this adventure in NZ
  • Chun Hin 28 Dec 2018
    Very good experience. The tour guide is very passionate and caring. I am traveling with my dad age 67 and he still managed to bring us to the ice caves. The hike is manageable and the view is spectacular. Recommended to anyone traveling to NZ!

  • Yee Ting 24 Dec 2018
    Glad that waterproof jackets, waterproof boots and crampons are provided and handy. Locker is also provided. Duration of hike is just nice and our particular guide (Nick) was very accommodating for photo-taking opportunities. He’s also quick with responses to adhoc queries and well-versed with the development of, and potential future changes to the glacier. The helicopter ride is pretty epic, & lastly, the view & locale is marvellous! Highly recommended!

The guides are super friendly, approachable and Friendly. We had Ben he was awesome. The glacier is also just magnificent. Would recommend to anyone
