We booked the flying fox heli hike and absolutely loved every second of it. We were told the weather had been bad for many weeks leading up to our trip and most tours had to be canceled for safety reasons. We were extremely lucky with the weather and took the 1:00 tour. This was my friends first helicopter ride and first walk on a glacier so she was pretty nervous. She smiled the entire 4 hours of the tour.
Our tour started with a safety briefing and outfitting us with socks and Asolo hiking boots. All employees were fun, energetic, and safety oriented. I was really impressed with the attention to detail when it came to our safety. The helicopter ride was shorter than we expected but still stunningly beautiful. After landing on the glacier we were shown how to attach our crampons to our boots and off we went on a casual walk along the top of the glacier. We stopped often to learn about the glacier and our surroundings. Our guides were full of fun facts and information. We drank the 98% pure water flowing down the glacier, wiggled our way through an ice cavern, stood at the base of an enormous waterfall, and took more pictures than I know what to do with. Wish I could go again tomorrow. Would love to try the ice climb next time.
