... taking a mini bus to the river where we met Ben who would take us on the jet boat up the River, Ben then took us on a nature walk to the area where we met our helicopter which then returned us to the boat.
It was highly enjoyed by all and the helicopter and glacier landing was a once in a lifetime experience
