Franz Josef Scenic Flight

Your scenic flight journey starts at our base in Franz Josef township.


Once on-board our helicopter, fly over pristine rainforest and into the valley that is home to Franz Josef Glacier(Ka Roimata-a-Hinehukatere). See mesmerising crevasses and rugged seracs on both the Franz Josef Glacier(Ka Roimata-a-Hinehukatere) and surrounding smaller glaciers.

As you climb high above the Franz Josef Glacier(Ka Roimata-a-Hinehukatere) look for crystal clear waterfalls descending from the mountains. We land to allow you to disembark onto the snow to take photos of the surrounding panorama. Enjoy views of the Tasman Sea as you return to Franz Josef township.
