The trip and also the guide were excellent. We had very good weather fortunately. The length of the trip was pretty good actually it was longer than that we expected. All in all we were very satisfied.
Trip was cancelled due to weather. The torrential rain coupled with thunder and lightning meant all activities cancelled. Franj Joseph Staff were great and we were offered lots of alternatives. Waiting to do trip in Queenstown.
Worth Spending the money. Only downfall was the hike hasnt been tracked in 5 days so the guide had to pick axe a clearer pathway for hiking groups which meant we were stopping every few steps to wait for him. It was frustrating. Suggest another guide performs this instead of the guide for the group as it ruins the experience. Apart from that the trip with the helicopter was great and the ice cave worth the trip all by itself. Its not a hard hike and can be done by most able people. Thanks crew.

Hike Fox Glacier Valley on a guided walking tour that explores glaciology, geology, local plants, and animals.
