Fox Glacier Heli Hike, West Coast
The Glacier Valley is a place of isolation and wonderment. The bottom of the awe-inspiring Fox glacier is less than 300m above sea level and as one of only 3 in the world this close to the sea is remarkable on a world scale. But the top is stunning which is where you will land after a thrilling helicopter flight up and over the jaw-dropping landscape. For three hours, your experienced guide will lead you through some of the most pristine and stunning glacier scenery in the world. You will see the stunning Victoria Falls, which is the melting river from the hidden Victoria glacier. Finding the most spectacular ice formations, you’ll make your way through an extraordinary land of towering & glistening blue ice.
Awash with photo opportunities of the ice world as well as the panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, you’ll learn a great deal about this amazing glacier on this trip-of-a-lifetime. As we like to say, JustGoThere!
