Walking on the glacier was definitely one of the best days we've had while travelling. We arrived in Franz Josef at lunchtime and about half an hour later we were in a helicopter (first time we've done that!) heading up towards the glacier. We got some awesome views of it and the mountains surrounding it! We then landed on the ice, already dressed up in all our warm and waterproof gear then attached the spikes to the bottom of our snow boots. After that we spent 3 hours on a guided walk around the glacier which was so cool! We saw huge deep crevasses and water holes that were so deep you couldn't see where the water was going. Frazer (going in with a 'yolo' attitude) decided it was a great idea to have a go at seeing how long he could hold his head under ice cold water for in one of the pools. He managed to beat someone who had won an iron man contest which he was pleased with, and another Dutch guy in our group broke the all time record and held his head under for a colossal 51 seconds!! His head was purple when he came up, but fair play to him! With a bit of help from some climbing rope we scaled the side of some massive blocks of ice, and even managed to venture through an ice cave which apparently we were lucky to see as the glacier changes all the time and they don't have accessible ones very often! The glacier we were on moves in some places up to 5 metres a day! We then got anther helicopter back down to the village, it was such an amazing experience!
