Get an unforgettable bird’s eye view of the world famous Franz Josef Glacier, one of the most dazzling and vital natural resources in the West Coast of New Zealand. This steep glacier that has settled in the alpine regions of the country, largely inaccessible save from the air due to its steep incline, is ever changing and moving. During your 20 minute flight, you’ll behold the splendid ice formation that has become a vital parting of life for its township. More than just ice and snow, the glacier is parting of a beautiful West Coast landscape that you’ll only be able to truly appreciate from your 6,000-foot flight, and from right up at the snow itself. Land down on the glacier, admire the blinding white snow crunching beneath your feet, and marvel at the power of nature.
