In the middle of deciding activities for our roadtrip - and now focusing on Franz Josef.
I have had a friend who has done the 'heli hike' and a friend who has done the 'ice explorer' (which also includes a heli transfer!) both rave about thier experience and both say that the tour guides either said 'the other wasnt worth the extra $100pp' - or the folks that did the heli hike where told it was definately worth the extra $ as they got to see better parts of the glacier.
Which doesnt really help me! I have never walked on a glacier before, so I am certain I will be amazed regardless - but I was wondering whether anyone out there could bring a bit of fact to the statements!!
Or refer me to any other tour guides that offer an even better experiance! It's not so much about the money in this circumstance, I'll pay more or less - its more just trying to find out if the experiences actually differ and what you do actually pay for!
Thanks guys :)
