When we were in Franz Josef Dad and I went up onto a massive glacier. How did we get there? By train,by bike,walk? No, we took a HELICOPTER!!! First the guide took us to the helicopter and I was allowed to sit in the front, next to the pilot! Then we took off.
We wore big headphones so the pilot could speak to us and it was very cool. The pilot told us where we were going and what we where doing. We flew up the valley to reach the glacier and then went up really, really high until we got to the top. The sky was blue and every other thing was white because it was all covered in snow.
The pilot landed us on a snow field then we got out of the helicopter and walked around it (click for a video). We landed on a big block of ice but it wasn’t slippery! It was like the gravel at the park. When we walked around it wasnt even that cold.
Then we got back into the helicopter and flew down the valley again and landed back in the town where Mum and Josie were waiting for us.
