    Heli hike & hot pools

    ... by the ice fall we first heard and then saw. It sounded like the biggest thunderstorm you can imagine, yet it was a relatively tiny amount of ice that broke off. We went to explore some compression arches which demonstrated how blue the ice seems when it is packed dense with no air bubbles. Sadly one side of the arch had melted a lot so it was too risky to walk through the arch in case a few hungred kilos of ice suddenly dropped on us. We had to detour past some large ...

    ... stay together and only walk where Raquel says. She often has to dig out a safe path for us with a pick axe. Dan slips and goes shooting off down the ice. Luckily he doesn't fall too far but we are a bit shaken.

By 3 pm Chris bum is bruised enough and the powder is starting to turn to ice so we make a stat on our long journey back to Franz. We managed to get through some of Arthur's pass in the light which was good and even made it to Hokitika before new world closed. We were back in Franz by 8pm ready to go to work nice and early the next ...

    ... we could see where we were going! We made it to the town of Hokitika and we parked up outside the information centre. We had a walk around for a little while, made a stop off in the library before taking a walk around the Jade Factory (they make jewellery out of the jade stone), we bought a little souvenir from a nice chap who paints images onto stones he collects from the beach (he had a workshop in the factory). We carried on along Highway 6 ...

    We woke up into a rainy morning, but we had a small hope in our hearts that the weather would change and we would be able to see the glaciers.

    Simple breakfast was more than enough for us and we embarked on our journey. Franz Josef glacier was located only few minutes from the place where we stayed.

    Rain was slowing down and till we arrived to the valley the glacier showed up in its full ...
