Fox Glacier Discover the wonders of ice formations by helicopter.

Fox Glacier is located in the Westland Tai Poutini National Park and takes its name from Sir William Fox, who visited the Glacier as Prime Minister of New Zealand in 1872.

It is one of the few Glaciers in the world which exists in such close proximity to both an ocean and a rainforest. The unique setting of Fox Glacier and speed of the ice-flow (up to 3 metres per day in places) make for some of the most dynamic ice formations of any glacier.

Our scenic flights depart on-demand. We operate daily from about 8am-6pm, depending on weather and seasonal conditions.
