An alternative is by Glenorchy Air. For example, the indicative price from Blanket Bay to Grasmere Lodge:
This charter price includes tax and the ferry time back to Queenstown. The flight includes a landing at Fox Glacier (with time for a heli-glacier flight, and or lunch / morning or afternoon tea if required which are an additional cost). Allow 3 hours. The flight between the two Lodges is one of the worlds great scenic flights
Like the Grand Canyon, this area is a World Heritage Area protected by UN Convention. You will enjoy unparalleled views of the New Zealand Southern Alps. You pass New Zealand's highest mountain, Mount Cook and its glaciers, experiencing living remnants of the last Ice Age. We recommend landing at Fox township which is near the terminus of the magnificent Fox glacier, where you can take a helicopter or ski plane ride onto the glacier.
