      The only reason people go to Fox Glacier is the overpowerig presence of Mount Cook, Mount Tasman, Fox Glacier, Franz Josef Glacier and all the accompanying stuff of mountains and snow.

      And the best way to see all this is by helicopter - given their ability to fly high and slow and land on the snowfields high in the mountains.

The tour was a helicopter ride to the glacier then a 3 hour walk through the ice as you are unable to walk to the glacier anymore.
