Our helihike had to be cancelled due to cloud coming in so beware of this (full refund). But company was very safety conscious, and also put on an extra half day Fox Trot hike on to the glacier. Would have liked to spend longer on ice and hard half hour up hill walk to get onto ice. Sherpa the guide was fantastic, and very knowledgable.
Thank you for your review. It was a shame to hear that you were unable to complete your trip of choice, The Flying Fox Helihike due to the weather. We realise that there is always an element of disappointment when the helicopters are grounded so if visitors are unable to reschedule to a different time we do endeavour to offer the Fox Trot half day walk as an option, it is great that you opted for this. As you have pointed out the two products offers are different, both are similar in overall duration but one uses a helicopter for transportation which allows for 2.5 hours on the ice. The other, without a helicopter, allows for up to one hour on the ice as getting to the access point is by taking a picturesque walk up the glacial valley which takes longer.
Thank you for acknowleging your time with your guide Passang Sherpa, we have passed your comments to him.
We hope that you will have the opportunity to return to Fox Glacier one day to experience the Flying Fox Heli Hike.
