We were booked in to fly around 10.30am and due to the weather the flight wasn't possible. HeliservicesNZ endeavored to take us at 4.30pm the same day, unfortunately that wasn't possible either. We were really starting to get upset at the prospect of possibly missing out. They said that we could try for 10.30am the following morning. The weather wasn't that great the next morning either so we were not hopeful. Luckily the weather was good enough for us to go in the helicopter. We couldn't do the flight that we wanted but we at least got to see both Fox & Franz Josef Glaciers and make a short snow landing. What a spectacle! Absolutely beautiful and definitely worth it.
We wish that the weather would have been a bit better so that we could see all the colour and beauty but can't predict or change Mother Nature.
We would love to go again and would hope to see the whole thing.
HeliservicesNZ were amazing to deal with. The pilot was knowledgeable and everything was awesome.

Thank you Amand for your great review and star rating. Yes we are certainly at the mercy of the weather, and we encourage our customers to consider more than one flight time / day to get the best possible conditions while in the region. As a general rule the mornings are often better, however should weather conditions be suitable when you arrive in the afternoon, best not to wait as conditions can always change even if the forcast says otherwise.

This was a new experience for me and I would highly recommend it to everyone
getting to see both the Fox and Franz glaciers so close and landing on one was something I will never forget. Breathtaking views thanks to Rachel our pilot. Thanks Mike for organizing our flight and our Franz Joseph experiences. We had an amazing two days in Franz and will come back again.

If you haven't been to Franz Joseph yet - go soon and enjoy

A truly wonderful trip, something to tick off the bucket list. Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed this experience and are still buzzing from it!
Our flight covered both the Fox and Franz Joseph glaciers, with a snow landing at the top. The views were amazing and our pilot was friendly and knowledgeable.
We felt safe at all times, and had a smooth flight without any bumps. While you can see the Glacier's from.a distance from the DOC walkways nothing bets the experience of low level flying over them and landing on the snow.

Thank you so much Clozzie, for such a fantasy review and 5 star rating. It is certainly true, that nothing beats the experience of flying over the glaciers up close and personal. I am pleased you felt safe at all times and your experience with HeliServices.NZ still has you “buzzing”

Weather forecast didn't look very good, and from the ground, the mountains seemed a bit cloudy, but oh boy! Once up there, clear skies above the glacier and a few dramatic clouds along the cliffs for good measure, created one of the most amazing views!
Being able to land and crawl in the snow for some time while our pilot took a few pics was super cool too :)
Overall, a highly recommended experience to top your visit of the west coast!

Thank you so much Julie C for your 5 star rating and wonderful review.yes it can be deceiving and once up there realising it is so clear with crisp white snow and deep blue sky. And thank you for highly recommending the experience as a top activity when you are in the West Coast. HeliServices.NZ Fox & Franz was very pleased to take you there.

One of the highlights of our trip to NZ was our helicopter flight over the twin glaciers and our snow landing on top of the glacier. We felt in very capable hands with pilot Dion and the photo opportunity is second to none. It was worth every dollar.

We did the trip that visited both Glaciers with a snow landing at Franz Josef. It was AMAZING. We were mesmerised by the view of the glaciers and being able to land and spend time up at the top- Our pilot Steven was great- friendly, ethustiatic and informative- there was really good views of the glaciers and the pilot made an effort to get good views for you no matter where you were sitting. We were a little reluctant to book a trip due to the price however we are so glad we did and were defintley not disappointed- defintley the highlight of our holiday.

Me and my wife drove all the way to franz Josef purely for this helicopter ride and snow landing, and it was totally worth every penny! The view and scenery was totally worth it! ALTHOUGH sometimes they require a minimum number of people to fly even if you have already booked the tour, so we were glad that someonelse joined in the last minute so we were able to fly. I recommend checking that with them before you confirm.

Thank you Ashraf F for your kind review. Yes minimum numbers are required and we work hard to ensure this does not delay any departures. We often have many people booking with us and find meeting minimum numbers very successful (we just need a minimum of two or three people depending on the tour - we do not have to have a full helicopter which really helps! Thank you for your comment "the view and scenery was totally worth it!" which is always great to hear.

we had an absolutely fantastic trip with these guys. They were very professional, giving a good safety briefing and a fantastic flight up onto the glacier. I'd highly recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment and if you are in Franz Josef, I would make this a high priority for your trip, it really is a fantastic experience.
