Fox Glacier – Heli-Hiking on One of World’s Most Accessible Glaciers

Know what? Life's short. Go and take the chance to heli-hike on one of world's most accessible glaciers, Fox Glacier, in New Zealand. It's an experience like no other. Combining a helicopter flight over the glacier and a guided walk on the ice itself, it provides a truly immersive glacier experience and is one of the best hiking adventures you can have in New Zealand.

What’s amazing about Fox Glacier is that it’s only 700 meters above sea level – there’s no other place else at that latitude with a glacier so close to ground level. That means you can opt to hike to the base of the glacier from town within a couple of hours but nothing beats getting a helicopter to drop you directly onto the glacier itself—agreed, huh?
