Top Out of the Ordinary Experiences- World . Announced 24th June 2021
Experience the sheer size and vast beauty of the Fox Glacier with us on one of our heli hiking tours.
No experience is required. All you need to enjoy your time on the glacier is warm clothing, sun protection, snacks to keep you energised, and a sense for adventure! We’ll provide you with the necessary outerwear, boots, crampons, and technical equipment. Our highly experienced guides will get you up close to impressive ice formations and safely lead you across the glacier.
Combine the thrill of 2 helicopter transfers, with the opportunity to explore a remote and pristine part of the glacier on foot, with your knowledgeable guide. Glacial forces are greatest in this area and often create spectacular ice caves, arches and tunnels, brilliantly blue in colour.
This action-packed all day heli hike includes 2 helicopter transfers in and out of Fox Glacier over lush rainforest, viewing NZ’s highest peaks. Your highly experienced guide will explain the nature of your glacier encounter and the environment you are exploring, while teaching you how to use your technical climbing equipment.
