Full description

Take off from Franz Josef for an incredible adventure by helicopter to observe the epic glaciers. Enjoy picturesque bird's-eye views from the sky as your pilot points out the mountainous terrain. Feel the adrenaline and chill in the air as you land on the glacier and walk through the snow.

Make your way to the supplier's office to meet your guide and group for the day. Go over a brief introduction before climbing into the helicopter and watching the ground disappear beneath you.

Sit back and relax, enjoying the view as the city below turns into the wilderness and a horizon of the Southern Alps. Reach the glaciers and look down at the breathtaking ice formations on these giant shifting frozen islands.

Come closer and closer as your helicopter touches down on the ice and take the chance to walk on the glacial snow. Breathe in the fresh mountain air and take some great photos before flying back to base.
