Flying Fox Heli Hike - 4 Hours - Fox Glacier


  • Thrilling helicopter transfers to and from the Fox Glacier
  • Opportunity to explore a remote and pristine part of the glacier on foot
  • All the gear you need, including boots, coat and crampons is provided

Combine the excitement of walking on the Fox Glacier with the thrill of fly-in, fly-out helicopter flights during this Heli Hike experience. Your helicopter approach allows you to access and explore a part of the glacier where its forces work hardest, often creating spectacular ice caves and arches.

What's Included?

  • Two Helicopter transfers
  • Spend up to three hours exploring the Fox Glacier
  • Guide
  • Socks, boots and crampons
  • Waterproof jacket
  • Waterproof over trousers
  • Walking pole
  • Ground transport

Thrills and chills abound on this journey! Equipped with leather walking boots and all the equipment required for your trip, you will board the helicopter for your first flight over the pinnacles of the lower icefall where the ice is in constant motion. Your landing site on the ice is a remote and exceptionally beautiful part of the glacier where you will see the stunning Victoria Falls, the melt river from the hidden Victoria glacier. At this stage, you'll be outfitted with crampons, specially designed for these ice conditions before you follow the ice steps cut by your guide for an exploration of the amazing ice formations. Your highly experienced guide will get you up close to impressive ice formations and safely lead you across the glacier. Each departure is a true voyage of exploration; there are so many changing features that your guide will often find something new to show you. After approximately three hours on the ice, you will take your return helicopter flight back to base.
