Enjoy a thrilling experience with the Fox Glacier Helicopter and Hike Combo!
Fly in by helicopter over beautiful New Zealand nature and explore a part of the Moeka o Tuawe/Fox Glacier with the most spectacular ice caves and arches.
You will land on a remote and exceptionally beautiful part of the glacier that is untouched by the public. Witness the stunning Victoria Falls, which is the melting river from the hidden Victoria glacier. At this stage, your guide will outfit you with crampons and you follow the ice steps cut by your guide to explore the amazing formations. Weather permitting, you'll have up to 3 hours on the ice time to explore and learn about this constantly changing glacier. The truly special part of this tour is that no two hikes are the same, with each hike exploring different areas of the glacier and its ever-morphing features.
