Mountain Experiences

Embark on an unforgettable alpine experience for first time mountaineers with our all day or overnight Mountain Experiences.

No experience is required.  All you need to enjoy your time with us 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. These trips include an exciting climb of Chancellor Dome, where you will enjoy spectacular views of NZ’s highest peaks.

Take a helicopter ride from our base, landing at 1,270 metres (4,000 feet) on Chancellor Shelf, just above the historic Chancellor Hut. After an unforgettable experience, take a second scenic helicopter ride back to our base in the heart of the Fox Glacier Township.

Browne Fox Heli Trek

This trip is a great introduction to mountaineering. Land by helicopter at Chancellor Hut and ascend through snowgrass basins to a spot where a glorious view of Mt Tasman appears. A highlight is the final ascent to the summit at 2,004 metres (6,526 feet). Enjoy lunch before your trek down to the hut.

Browne Fox Overnight Heli Trek

This is a truly magnificent and complete experience – climb a mountain, explore a glacier, overnight in a historic hut and feel the moods of the mountains. The first day encompasses the elements of our Browne Fox Heli Trek, along with dinner at the hut. On day two,  discover the features of Victoria Flat.
