Would star-gazing be something that can be done along the spots? e.g. can also do at Twizel/Te Anau?

But if Helihike can be done on Day 1, then it would make an additional night stay at Fox Glacier/Franz Josef Glacier redundant...what else could I do there besides Lake Matheson Walk?

there are some hiking trails in the area. maybe do a hike to fox glacier?


actually, u may not have that much time to do a lot of things in FJG/Fox.

my plan was similar to urs, wanaka to lake matheson, then FJG. heli hike at FJG. but i stayed 2 nights in case of bad weather.
ended up, wanaka to lake matheson took longer than planned, coz we stopped at many places along the way for sightseeing. so went straight to FJG instead. heli hike took longer than expected also, ended pass lunchtime. so by the time we are done with heli hike and lunch, was already 2-3pm. went lake matheson coz the previous day didnt cover, and that was abt it for the 2 nights in FJG.
