Later in the afternoon, we arrived in the town of Franz Joseph where we could breathe the same air of the Italian mountain locality of Cortina D’ Ampezzo , but we were almost at sea level.
Early in the morning, we started our adventure on the Franz Joseph Glacier .
We started by helicopter which, after a scenic flight, left us in the heart of the glacier.
There, a nice Italian guide was waiting for us! She gave us crampons to wear and an ice ax
and accompanied us through a fascinating itinerary for nearly two hours .
