    ... helipad. In the past, it was possible to get onto the glacier by foot. Now as the glacier has receded, the only safe way is via a helicopter. The flight itself only took five minutes. The views were great and it was so smooth. We took off and headed through the valley over the forest and rivers then through the clouds until the glacier came into view. Jagged ice peaks of white and blue appeared to spill down from the top of the ...

    ... as we took off, and rose up for an amazing ride. The landscape I'd seen on foot a day earlier seemed even more alien from above, and then there were the snow capped mountains and the glacier. I soon got used to stomping with crampons attached to the boots provided. We stood on ice 70 meters deep.

    ... started in the 36 pool. We switched to the 38 pool but this was definitely colder. The 40 one was much warmer and we spent most time in the 36. We were in for just under 2 hours altogether relaxing muscles from kayaking earlier. Tea was in the Landing where we got a special menu of burgers for free with our kayak booking. The burger was excellent, probably better then the ones in the Skygarden. Wine and desert good too and we left happy. Drive to Wanaka tomorrow, a long ...

    ... had lots of nice things and we bought two wooden blocks with photos on of the beach and the gorge. Even better they were half price as they were odd sizes the owner wasn't producing any more. Ed bought two cute stones painted as a penguin and a kiwi. Jurgen the owner from Germany was very friendly and chatted about rugby amongst other things. Tash still wanted some jade so we went into a smaller shop, Heritage Jade and found lots of nice pieces, more reasonably priced than ...

    ... out and hiking along the coast, as coastal walking is one of my favourite things to do. A big group of us caught a water taxi, which was lowered into the sea by none less than a tractor! We cruised around the coastline to Anchorage Bay, a beautiful but small, sweeping bay. After exploring the beach, which had a secret cave area at one end, we started our 12km hike back to where we were staying at The Barn. (http://www.barn.co.nz). We were blessed with glorious sunshine ...
