We spent one night in Franz Josef last week and thought that it would be more practical and less expensive to see the Franz Josef glacier, by foot. We did some research on Trip Advisor and it soon became apparent to us that walking to it wouldn’t be as good as flying over it. Our motel suggested Fox and Franz Josef Heliservices and rang them on our behalf to see if they had any seats available. Luck was on our side as well as the weather and there were seats available on a morning flight. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by the friendly staff. Firstly Brad P was so friendly and helpful ensuring we understood the safety requirements and also helped us on and off the helicopter. Bill, our pilot, made us feel at ease immediately and provided lots of information during the flight, about the glacier. Being able to land on the top and take the most amazing photos was a highlight. If your tossing up whether to do the walk or the flight, don’t think too long and do the flight! It was the most amazing experience that my husband and I have had the privilege to do. To see the most spectacular view so close up was a privilege we will never forget. Thanks to the team, we would highly recommend, absolute value for money. Jo and Wayne, Australia.
