Your tour begins when you arrive at base on the Main Street of Franz Josef.
Take off on this 40-minute ultimate Mt Cook helicopter flight when you fly over the glacial icefalls, crevasses and the neves. You will experience views from the coast to the mountain tops as you get to see both of the amazing West Coast glaciers (Franz Josef Glacier and Fox Glacier) and New Zealand’s highest peak, Mount Cook.
Cross the Southern Alps spine and circle to the top of the magnificent Mt Cook before taking the opportunity to top it all off with a spectacular snow landing, getting your feet on snow and taking the best holiday photos.
This is the best helicopter experience on the West Coast and perhaps even in all of New Zealand.
