Flying over Franz Josef
I hadn't considered taking a helicopter flight over Mount Cook, Franz Josef or anywhere in New Zealand to be honest. It wasn't until we pulled over for a picnic breakfast and discovered that we were in fact parked up at a helipad. After asking a few questions and having a casual conversation, we decided to part with the cash and take a fifty minute flight over Aoraki and land on Franz Josef Glacier. The views were unreal. So I'll stop talking and let you see for yourself why you should take a scenic flight over Mount Cook National Park.
