Which is the best glacier for a helicopter trip?

Hi

I will be coming to New Zealand in August and would really like to do a glacier helicopter trip whilst we are in and around Franz Josef.

Any advice on which is the best glacier to see from the air (and any recommended companies) and which to walk up would be great.

Thanks in advance for your help and advice!

I personally prefer Fox Glacier over Franz because it is larger and less crowded. The township is smaller but with great personal service. Any of the Heli-hikes are great from here too.

But I'm sure you will get others who will disagree. Either way you won't be disappointed.

ENJOY
