Neve Discoverer - 20 Minute Helicopter Flight

Take to the skies on a thrilling helicopter flight over the Franz Josef or Fox Glaciers!

Highlights

  • 20 minute scenic flight
  • Snow landing

The rugged West Coast is home to some of the most dramatic landscapes in New Zealand where the mountains meet the Tasman Sea and where rainforests make way to Glaciers.

Only here can glaciers be found in such a majestic setting, in such close proximity to the Sea, making Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers truly unique. Feel the anticipation build as you board our state of the art helicopter with large viewing windows and gently lift off on your adventure.

You'll experience awe-inspiring views from the get-go as we make our way to either the Fox or Franz Josef Glacier. This exclusive flight also includes a snow landing allowing you to play in the snow or simply soak up the stunning views of this untouched wilderness.

Come and experience with us a truly magical alpine wonderland!

Fantastic Ride!

This was a last minute decision to do this, and I’m glad I did. What a thrill to ride up and see the full glacier from on top! Landing and the short time on the glacier was worth it. Thrilled is all I can say.

Highlight of West Coast Trip

If you have the chance when in Fox or Franz definitely do this helicopter trip to the top of Fox Glacier. It was such an amazing experience especially as we had the perfect clear blue sunny day. Landing on the top and walking on the snow was exciting. You then get to see Mt Cook before flying down the glacier back to base. Thanks Toby our pilot.
