There may only be one thing that thrills our guests more than hiking on Franz Josef Glacier and that is the helicopter ride to get there.  The magic of a Franz Josef Glacier Guides’ trip is the opportunity to do two amazing, cool, crazy things in one day. Recent guest Stephen was so enthused by the experience, he wrote a great blog about it on his page The Crossroad.  We love the fact that Stephen got as much of a buzz out of the helicopter ride as he did out of “walking inside a glacier”.
