Absolutely spectacular! You get up a lot higher on the glacier by chopper and the view on the way up and back is incredible. The guides are well informed and entertaining and wandering around on the glacier is fascinating.
Booking through Viator web site was easy and secure. the Heli Hiking Franz Joseph tour was fantastic. Great scenery from helicopter and walking on ice was great fun with knowledgable guide who catered for our adventurous group by allowing us the opportunity to crawl through a worm hole in the ice.
Amazing, We both had a great time on the Heli Hike, I will be recommending this to many friends and family. Cheers
We had a fun and safe journey around the glacier. The views, the senses, the exciting will never be forgotten. Highly recommend the chopper ride up to the Glacier.
A unique expierence. Would love to do it again ,perhaps for a longer period .
The highlight of our visit to South Island - very well organised with an excellent guide who recognised those less able to cope and called them forward to follow closely in her steps.
What an amazing experience! Walking through the Glacier is spectacular. I would have liked the Guide to have provided some history on the Glacier but he did not talk much.
We have just got back from our New Zealand holiday, and it is all fresh in our minds, and will be forever. The helicopter ride to the glacier, the 2 hour walk around, and the sights all are so much better when you have keen staff who share their love of the glacier and New Zealand. We were lucky to have the flight because of the weather that came in. My recommendation is go for the early morning flight and get any questions you have ready, because the experience of seeing such beauty is breathtaking. To the pilots that took us up and down Franz Josef, and the 2 guides that took us around and presented a beautiful look at the glacier, our thanks. Perfect trip, highly recommend!
Absolutely brilliant. From the helicopter ride to the actual hiking was a new experience for all 4 of our party and we loved every minute of it. The guide was excellent and looked after us very well.
This was a totally awesome experience! Definitely a highlight of our holiday! The guide was informative and involved us in a fantastic adventure.
