Having stayed at Franz Josef for a few days we booked the trip to do the Grand Tour. It was very cloudy and on the last day the flights were unfortunately cancelled due to poor visibility. On our last day at Franz Josef we were out of luck again but were offered a flight from Fox. And what spectacular flight it was!

There are a few service providers in the area and Fox Franz Heliservices is the cheapest but we had great service throughout. We were lucky to land on the Fox glacier and the whole experience was definitely one of the highlights of our NZ trip!

Thank you Ziga_24, for a wonderful review. Yes, sometimes it can be cloudy and unflyable for one glacier yet clear and safe to fly over the other. Very pleased you experienced what we offer after a patient few days waiting for the weather. Thank you for recommending us and noting our "great service throughout" and your experience a definite highlight of your NZ trip!

We were on our second-last day of our NZ family adventure and we managed to squeeze in a heli-flight and glacier landing at Franz Josef - what an amazing, awe-inspiring journey it was! Having walked to the glacier some 20 years ago and on our night before, the flight was a whole other experience. Our pilot was excellent and the views we had were absolutely breath-taking. It was also brilliant to have the opportunity to land and walk at the top of Franz Josef. Highly recommend!

Thank you Family3146, a great review. I am pleased you had the opportunity to land and walk at the top of the Franz Josef, and thank you for noting your pilot was excellent, along with the absolutely breath-taking views. A great memory rekindled after walking to the glacier some 20 years ago.

Heli-ride-Land. One of the best things we have done ever as a family... it was some 20 years since our last visit. A big change in the distance to the glacier face. We hiked to the Glacier view point (45 one way) in a lot of rain late on the day before . We really wanted to take a flight but was closed due to weather. At the odd chance of availability (next morning) we were able to take an 9am trip and stand on the top of an amazing living glacier 20 min later. Memories and Photos for life..... thanks to all the team for accomodating us on the day and the safe return travel. MUST DO experience.

If you only do one thing, try and get up in a helicopter over the glacier. It's the best way to see it. Smooth friendly operation, highly recommended.
