I was reluctant in leaving my footprints on the glaciers. Plus, I had a marvelous experience with fixed wing in Denali (Alaska), so I chose fixed wing over helicopter at Franz Josef.
Air Safari delivered much more than they advertised. The flight was long to see the farms, town, coastlines, all the glaciers, important mountain peaks, from low to really high overview...a full command views of the whole thing. The high overview is not possible with helio...at times we cound see the tiny helicopters whirling way below us. View of Mt Cook, from up high, is most awesome sight. Above all, the most warm and friendly service from desk staff to the pilot. They were so flexible and accommodative in making sure we have the best experience and stunning photographs.
