The Heli-hike:

Meet at the Helicopter Line to enjoy a scenic flight over the three impressive ice-falls of the Franz Josef Glacier.  Hop out of the helicopter and let a trained Glacier Guide take you on a tour through some amazing glacial terrain.

One of the best things I've done in my life. Seriously. We had perfect sunny weather, a completely calm lake with mirror-like reflections all to ourselves. It was magical. We even saw a rainbow! Our guide Quoha (I'm sorry, I don't know how to write your name!) was very nice and knowledgeable. She gave us some insight into the flora and fauna of the place and some very interesting tasting leaves to chew. I will definitely recommend this to anybody who is visiting Franz Josef and has some spare money to spend!
