absolutely amazing experience
Mar 2021
This was a new experience for me and I would highly recommend it to everyone
getting to see both the Fox and Franz glaciers so close and landing on one was something I will never forget. Breathtaking views thanks to Rachel our pilot. Thanks Mike for organizing our flight and our Franz Joseph experiences. We had an amazing two days in Franz and will come back again.

If you haven't been to Franz Joseph yet - go soon and enjoy

Breathtaking and beautiful
Oct 2020
We were booked in to fly around 10.30am and due to the weather the flight wasn't possible. HeliservicesNZ endeavored to take us at 4.30pm the same day, unfortunately that wasn't possible either. We were really starting to get upset at the prospect of possibly missing out. They said that we could try for 10.30am the following morning. The weather wasn't that great the next morning either so we were not hopeful. Luckily the weather was good enough for us to go in the helicopter. We couldn't do the flight that we wanted but we at least got to see both Fox & Franz Josef Glaciers and make a short snow landing. What a spectacle! Absolutely beautiful and definitely worth it.
We wish that the weather would have been a bit better so that we could see all the colour and beauty but can't predict or change Mother Nature.
We would love to go again and would hope to see the whole thing.
HeliservicesNZ were amazing to deal with. The pilot was knowledgeable and everything was awesome.

Thank you Amand for your great review and star rating. Yes we are certainly at the mercy of the weather, and we encourage our customers to consider more than one flight time / day to get the best possible conditions while in the region. As a general rule the mornings are often better, however should weather conditions be suitable when you arrive in the afternoon, best not to wait as conditions can always change even if the forcast says otherwise.

Touch down on Franz Joseph Glacier
Jan 2020
My first trip in a helicopter would have been exhilarating anywhere but this was extra special. Looking down on the glacier and getting up close to the mountain side was breathtaking but then landing in the snow so our band of five stangers could take photos of the glacier and of course ourselves standing beside the helicopter will be a memory for ever.

Amazing Adventure
Feb 2019
Traveling from New Zealand to Australia with friends, we hesitated to do the helicopter excursion initially, as each of the couples had experienced such trips in places like Alaska and Hawaii previously. However, when we stopped in town the weather was so favorable that we decided to go for it...and were we glad we did! Everything was extremely professionally run and well organized. From the check-in and orientation to the actual flight itself. We were treated to views that one could simply not imagine. Seeing the glaciers in flight also provided the opportunity to see how they had moved over time. Landing on top of the glacier was the absolute highlight for all of us. We were able to get out and roam around on the snow packed glacier where we took a group shot. The pilot provided excellent narration and pointed out other aspects to us on the glacier itself. If you're trying to decide whether to spend the money and see the sights, my advice is: "Do it!--You won't regret it for a minute!"

Crazy experience!
Oct 2019 • Solo
Weather forecast didn't look very good, and from the ground, the mountains seemed a bit cloudy, but oh boy! Once up there, clear skies above the glacier and a few dramatic clouds along the cliffs for good measure, created one of the most amazing views!
Being able to land and crawl in the snow for some time while our pilot took a few pics was super cool too :)
Overall, a highly recommended experience to top your visit of the west coast!

Thank you so much Julie C for your 5 star rating and wonderful review.yes it can be deceiving and once up there realising it is so clear with crisp white snow and deep blue sky. And thank you for highly recommending the experience as a top activity when you are in the West Coast. HeliServices.NZ Fox & Franz was very pleased to take you there.

Everyone was very nice with a clean facility even though remodeling was being done. The remodel in no way interfered with function of the facility and was not being done during business hours. The flight was good and the pilot was informative about our surroundings. Overall excellent experience.

Thanks to Brad P, who gave us some excellent advice to try and get a flight in the late afternoon rather than wait until the next day due to the changing weather conditions we had a fabulous flight with Josh. Brad obviously knows his stuff as the next day weather conditions look terrible.

Well worth it!!!
We did the trip that visited both Glaciers with a snow landing at Franz Josef. It was AMAZING. We were mesmerised by the view of the glaciers and being able to land and spend time up at the top- Our pilot Steven was great- friendly, ethustiatic and informative- there was really good views of the glaciers and the pilot made an effort to get good views for you no matter where you were sitting. We were a little reluctant to book a trip due to the price however we are so glad we did and were defintley not disappointed- defintley the highlight of our holiday.
