Half Day Flying Fox Heli Hike - Fox Glacier Guiding
Combine the best of both worlds with this fly-in, fly-out HeliHike that will give you the thrill of a helicopter flight, as well as a glacier, walk all while taking in the breathtaking mountain scenery.
By flying in you are able to access and explore a part of the glacier where its forces work hardest and often create spectacular ice caves and arches
Equipped with sturdy leather boots and other equipment, you board the helicopter for your first flight over the pinnacles of the lower icefall. Here, the ice is in constant motion. Take in views of the dramatic upper icefall and Victoria Falls, which is the melt river from the hidden Victoria glacier, before landing
Your landing site on the ice is a remote and exceptionally beautiful part of the glacier. At this stage, your guide outfits you with crampons, specially designed for these ice conditions and you follow the ice steps cut by your guide as you explore the amazing formations and ice caves which are only seen here
Each departure is a true voyage of exploration. There are so many changing features that the guides always find something new
