I presume you are talking about New Zealand? You can do guided half day or full day walks on both Franz Josef and Fox glaciers. There is also the option to do a heli- hike which I'd strongly recommend as you get to go further up the glacier and see much more interesting ice formations.

i would definitely go for the heli hike if you can as its an amazing experience - if you do struggle to make it to the west coast though there is also the spectacular tasman glacier (though i would personally go for fox):
