It was more than I expected. Their small 4 seats helis are amazing. Thank you a lot!

Flight Information

Lift off from our Franz Helipad at the foot of the Southern Alps. We take off by an ancient terminal morraine left by the Glacier! The scenic views have already started. Within seconds you are looking at the world famous Franz Josef Glacier. As we fly over this iconic attraction we climb above and beyond to reveal the real heart of the truly magnificent Southern Alps. Take a deep breath as the highest Mountain in New Zealand comes into view. Mount Cook shouldered by Mt Tasman and the Southern Alps.

Unsurpassed views await those that embark on a journey with Glacier Country Helicopters Ltd, spectacular mountain vistas, panoramic ocean seascapes and New Zealand wildlife in their natural habitat.
