If you do one thing while day in glacier country go on a helicopter trip and landing, it's just magical. We chose perhaps the best day the coast has seen for sometime, so decided quite late in the day to go. Fox and Franz Josef Heliservices based in Franz Josef and Fox Glacier was our chosen tour operator. The trip we wanted to do only left from Fox, which wasn't a problem, just a 15 minute drive away. We did the Fox and Mount Cook, Tasman Glacier with a snow landing. The booking office boys were very helpful, and our driver to the take off point in Fox,( who is training to be a heli pilot) was really friendly and chatty. Toby our pilot on the day was amazing too, we can't thank all the staff enough for a fantastic experience. The snow landing was incredible, then we headed back down Fox Glacier for another view. This company is, I think the only one that has a discount of 50% for children, unsure what the cut of age is, but our son was 12 years.
