We did the Heli Hike tour. It takes you a little higher on the glacier and you also get a slightly longer helicopter tour. There is quite a bit of waiting around at first and the organization could be better. This is not a cheap tour so service at the reception could be a bit better. Be prepared to be patient through the kitting stages. However once you are kitted out and on the helicopter it is a great experience. The chopper rises up through the valley, skirting the walls and over the glacier, finally landing you on the ice. A guide shows you how to fit crampons on your boots then takes you through a series of walks, explaining many aspects of the glacier. It is an amazing experience to just be on the ice and the views are breathtaking. Expect to be with up to 12 people on the tour.
