Franz Josef Helicoper Flights (3)

Franz Josef – Scenic Helicopter Flights

Experience the true untouched beauty and awe inspiring scenery of New Zealand’s South Island on a Franz Josef Glacier helicopter tour.

This helicopter ride over the Franz Josef Glacier sweeps over the lush sub-tropical forests of the Westland National Park as you climb to 6000’ before landing on the snow.
Essential Wear for Snow Landing

As your Franz Josef Glacier helicopter flight will disembark in snow, we insist on these essential clothing:

Covered shoes (sneakers or trainers are fine) or your hiking boots
Plenty of film (or memory cards) for your camera
Clothing – Wear comfortable outdoor clothing suitable for wearing on the snow.
Occasionally the temperate can be 5-10 degrees cooler on the snow than it is in the village.
Check with our ground-crew if you are unsure of what to wear

happy with our service

  • The organisation and communication were first class. The flexibility in travelling to the destination was impressive and the hotels where we stayed  in were all of a good standard. Our Coach was driven by Ken, who was a character and nothing was too much for him.

  • We both enjoyed the Magnificent New Zealand holiday immensely. The Coach Driver/Tour Guide was excellent and the hotels were really comfortable. The holiday was extremely good value and I would recommend it to anyone waning to taste the Antipodean holiday experience.
