Your journey starts and ends at The Helicopter Line Base, situated on the Main Road (State Highway 6), Franz Josef Glacier, 7856. On arrival, our friendly team will check you in and prepare you for the excitement ahead with necessary gear and pre-trip briefings.
From here, you will take a short walk to the helicopter pad where your pilot will whisk you away over the jaw dropping landscape - an opportunity to take in the full panoramic majesty of Franz Josef Glacier. You will land high up on the main ice fall of the glacier, where your guide will help you make the final preparations for your adventure.
During your hike your guide will share with you the story of the Maori legend, Ka Roimata o Hine Hukatere (the tears of Hine Hukatere), their knowledge of the glacier and surrounding area and insight on why Franz Josef is so unique. You’ll come away from your trip not only with a sense of awe at this majestic beauty, but a whole new understanding of why this precious landmark is so special.
