Glacier Country Helicopters is a local, family owned and operated company based in Franz Josef, on the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island.


Husband and wife team Gus and Poppy started the company in January 2014. They still have their sleeves rolled up each day working their roles in the business and are both experienced pilots themselves.


Our small team are passionate about what we do, to us it’s more than just a scenic flight. We want you to experience the real West Coast and would love for you to join us to see the rainforests, glaciers and mountains that form our incredible backyard.
