- One of New Zealand’s biggest natural attractions
- The ultimate way to appreciate the glacier’s scale and beauty
New Zealand’s Fox Glacier, or to give it its Maori name, Te Moeka o Tuawe, is a vast, spectacular glacier and one of the few that exist in close proximity to both an ocean and a rainforest. This unique setting, and the speed of the ice flow (up to 3 metres a day in some areas) makes it a major visitor attraction on the South Island. You’ll take a memorable helicopter flight over Fox Glacier to enjoy superlative views of the surrounding landscape that most people miss.
This flight has everything. Admire stunning panoramas of glacier icefalls, deep crevasses and neves, and astonishing views from ocean to Alps. Cross over the rugged spine of the Southern Alps and circle the peak of Aoraki / Mt. Cook, the highest mountain in New Zealand. The trek to the Fox Glacier is a very popular activity, but if you really want to get a sense of its scale, then the best way to do that is by helicopter. A truly unforgettable flight.
