The Extreme Fox Heli-Hike; spend an exhilarating day on the West Coast’s largest glacier and challenge yourself.
You’ll land on Victoria Flat and put on your crampons, then you are on the move. Off to explore the upper icefall.
What you will see and do will depend on the ice features on the glacier at the time. You might ford crevasses, use rope to travel, or be lowered into and climb out of moulin (deep ice holes). You might climb and abseil down ice walls, or ascend short ice pitches, using an ice axe and crampon climbing techniques. How much you do will depend on the day’s ice conditions and the level of ability of your small group (3-4 people).
You’ll spend up to 6 hours on the ice, and then heli-transfer back to our base in town.
