Whilst it is not always possible to get helicopter flights up and over the glaciers, you can do the next best thing and go on a walk to the base of Franz Josef glacier.
Conducted by Mike who was our very knowledgeable guide, the group for my trip was small - I was with only another 3 adults so it is was very personal.
General fitness is all you need for this 3 hour walk and Mike will tell you lots of detail about the formation of the glacier, how it is constantly changing and about the wildlife. You get to go beyond the rope which stops most other tourists and get a great view of the base of the glacier.
