The Flying Fox Heli Hike Tour is the perfect combination of thrill and excitement as you ride a helicopter over the beautiful expanses of New Zealand nature and walk on the Fox Glacier. Get an exclusive view of the Victoria Falls, which is the melted river of the hidden Victoria Glacier. By taking a helicopter to your starting destination, you can access and explore a part of the glacier that is not easily accessed by the public and where nature works hardest to create spectacular ice caves and arches. As you hike, learn about the mighty river of ice that runs 12km from New Zealand’s highest peaks to the rainforest below. No tour is the same, with each guide exploring different areas of the glacier and its many changing features.
