Flying Fox: Helihike

4 Hours

Price from £216 per person

This fly-in, fly-out tour combines the excitement of walking on the Fox Glacier with the thrill of a helicopter flight. Board the helicopter for a flight over the pinnacles of the lower icefall, where the ice is in constant motion, before circling the upper icefall and Victoria Falls then landing on a remote and exceptionally beautiful part of the glacier. At this stage, participants are fitted with crampons to follow the ice steps cut by the guide and explore amazing formations and ice caves before re-boarding the helicopter and returning to the village.
