Overview

Details

The awesome combination of the Fox HeliHike allows explorers to access a remote area of the glacier. A thrilling helicopter flight will take you to a part of the glacier renowned for its pristine ice formations and spectacular ice caves. Equipped with sturdy leather boots and other equipment, you board the helicopter for your first flight over the pinnacles of the lower icefall. Here, the ice is in constant motion. You then circle the upper icefall and Victoria Falls before landing.

Your landing site on the ice is a remote and exceptionally beautiful part of the glacier. At this stage, your guide outfits you with crampons, specially designed for these ice conditions and you follow the ice steps cut by your guide as you explore the amazing formations and ice caves which are only seen here.

Each departure is a true voyage of exploration. There are so many changing features that the guides always find something new. Weather permitting, ice time is about 2.5-3 hours. Please note that this is a natural and ever changing environment. Ice features change constantly and no guarantee can be given that specific features will be seen.
