      Your tour begins when you arrive at base on the Main Street of Fox Glacier. Take off on this 30-minute Mt Cook helicopter experience flying the entire length of Fox Glacier. Take in aerial views of the glacial icefalls, crevasses and the neves. You will experience views from the coast to the mountain tops as you get to see both of the amazing Fox Glacier and New Zealand’s highest peak, Mount Cook.  Cross the Southern Alps spine and fly beside the magnificent west face of Mt Cook before taking the opportunity to top it all off with a spectacular snow landing, getting your feet on snow and taking the best holiday photos.

      Incredible experience and beautiful scenery!
      Incredible experience! Being able to land on the glacier for photos and it being warm enough to not need a jacket. Incredible scenery and well worth visiting!

      Amazing experience
      The day my husband and I were to take this flight the weather was terrible and The Helicopter Line Fox Glacier contacted me in the morning to cancel our afternoon flight. They were very understanding of our overnight stay in Fox Glacier and rescheduled for the following morning. The flight took place at 10.00am and was shortened by ten minutes due to wind conditions on the mountain. However this did not detract from the experience. There were six passengers on this flight and I was fortunate to be in the front and my husband behind at the window. It had snowed overnight which meant we landed on a mountain with a fresh covering and the views were spectacular. I would highly recommended this experience.

      Amazing
      What a fantastic team we dealt with for our booking. Brad and his team were so helpful and full of information regarding weather and what to expect. We had the pleasure of Cody being our pilot for the day. He’s is a very professional pilot and felt very comfortable on the flight. He was very informative during the flight and knew a lot about the history of the area. We landed up in the snow and we’re lucky enough that he took some great pictures of us. Can’t wait to book another flight with you all in the future thank you so much for having us.

      A must do experience
      An absolutely must do. You need to be flexible as the weather changes constantly. We were booked at 1 pm but had to rebook for 2:30. The company does its best to get you up on the helicopter. The experience is amazing, so cool to be up in the alpine and the landing was magic. You just need to do this.

      Must do
      This is amazing. The helicopter ride and views are spectacular and we also could get out and walk around on one of the glaciers.

      What an amazing experience!
      From start to finish, an absolutely amazing experience. The staff in the office so bubbly and personable, the pilot ‘Pete’ so knowledgeable and most importantly, a great pilot, and the flight, glacier landing and return was magnificent. An absolute must if visiting this stunning part of the world.

      A great flight but no as described
      Great views and definitely worth doing but total flying time 11 minutes from take off to landing (0927 to 0938). They confirmed the flight at 0800 but only after check in, weighing you and giving you wrist tags did they say it's not a 40 minutes flight but a 20 minute one with no landing. It then turned out to be 8 minutes something or other and 12 minutes actusl flight. They tell you this at the helicopter. I appreciate weather changes but even at a 'reduced rate' of NZ 290 each I feel short changed. Especially as it wasn't even 12 minutes. If I was on my own I'd have refused to pay as the service was not as described but with a family sometimes its best just to move on. They seemingly cannot fly through cloud which of course is fair enough so on a poor day I'd cancel and try again later. To be fair the woman at check in said this to some later customers. I suspect the staff are encouraged to get the punters to fly whatever. Pilot was great. I would ask them exactly the route to be taken and actual flying time. As long as you know this it should be fine.

      Excellent service from start to finish
      The staff were very approachable, and made us feel very comfortable and confident. The pre flight briefing was excellent, but not stuffy. We had a delay due to low cloud, and the flight had to be cut short due to the weather conditions, but the staff were quite happy to refund the difference. The pilot was great. We had a wonderful experience flying over, then landing on the glacier. An experience not to be missed.

    We had amazing experience with Glacier Helicopters! Firstly in the Fox Glacier office Bel explained us everything about the flights really properly and answered all our questions clearly. We’ve got an attractive discount as well. We’ve chosen Mt. Cook + Fox Glacier option. On the previous day we climbed Mt. Fox, where we had wonderful view for Glacier and Mt. Cook; we’ve worried a little bit, that views from the helicopter could be quite similar. We were totally wrong!!! We flew really high, pilot Clark showed and explained us about the peaks, glaciers, huts, vallyes arround. The flight was smooth and save – Clark is real professionalist. The weather was wonderful, during glacier-landing we were totally alone and the total flight time was longer than expected. It was the best experience in our life, worth every money. Team of Glacier Helicopters – thank you for such amazing adventure!!!

    Hello julaspryciula. We take pride in the excellent customer service experience we deliver from the moment you walk in the door. The Fox Glacier to Mount Cook flight is a fantastic option departing from Fox Glacier. Soaring over the crevasses of the Glacier before heading towards the highest mountain in the country, topped off with a snow landing is an experience to last a life time! Thank you for taking the time to leave such positive feedback, we will pass it on to Bel and Clark, and we all hope you enjoyed your time here on the West Coast.
