The best way to see the Franz Josef Glacier in New Zealand is not the cheapest one: a glacier hiking tour with a short helicopter ride. But now that I’m here I don’t want to miss this opportunity. Plus I’ve always wanted to ride a helicopter, so this is my chance.
And as soon as we take off and approach the glacier I immediately forget about how much this is costing me. It’s simply worth it!
