Check in on arrival at either the Franz Josef Glacier tour or Tasman Glacier tour and get to your helicopter. Have a safety briefing as your equipment is handed out. Go out to a deep part of the glacier via a scenic helicopter flight. Pass over the deep crevasses of the icefalls and waterfalls to land at the upper Franz Josef Icefall. Alternatively, take a scenic helicopter flight over the Tasman Terminal Lake to the Tasman Glacier. Be fitted with crampons for your trek out onto the glacier, exploring ices caves, and seeing the natural, ever-changing wonders of the South Island’s glaciers.

What people are saying about Franz Josef Town

The whole process was well managed and staff highly professional. The experience was fantastic and words don't do it justice. I have a fear of flying and the pilot Simon made me feel safe the whole time so that l enjoyed every minute. Amazing experience not to be missed.

Excellent experience. Team is very friendly, helpful and transparent regarding the flights and flight conditions. Did a 35min Scenic Flight and loved every second of it.

Weather conditions were great and we were able to conduct flight as planned. Landing on the glacier was awesome.

Excellent, we really enjoyed the flight and the opportunity to get out onto the glacier.

Was well worth the money as it's every day you can walk on the glacier
