Hands down the best tour I have been on! The glacier was amazing! Our guide, Justin did a great job keeping us all entertained and telling us about the glacier! The equipment they provide was clean and in excellent condition.
Awesome. Totally worth it.
Wow!! What an adventure. This was a great excursion. The helicopter ride was about 10-15 minutes and then 3 hours on the ice. Don't be afraid of walking on ice and through crevasses. The guide was helpful and started slowly so everyone became comfortable walking with crampons. Highly recommend this excursion.
It's not my first glacier and I can say it was really amazing! The track on the glacier was really interesting, including walking inside the glacier and watching a lot of stunning views. Strongly recommended.
Really fun. Worth it. What's not amazing about taking a helicopter up on a glacier and walking around. The pools, which are included, were busy but you have 24h to use the voucher. I would say try to get on the glacier asap during your stay in Franz Josef.
I was in New Zealand for 9 days and this was my favorite part of the trip. The guides were great and the hike really made you appreciate the enormity of the glacier. We trekked through some crevices in the ice that allowed you to see the inside of the glacier. All in all it was definitely worth the money.
Great experience. Tour guide was awesome. The thermal pools at the end were great as well especially if the temperatures are a little cooler. Don't forget to drink some of the glacier water that is running either.
Everything about this walk was excellent! The pilot, the guide, the staff preparing the glacier. And of course, how amazing to be walking on a glacier and squeezing between blue ice crevices!
We were so lucky having a cloudless sky for our visit. We had 3 hours on the glacier and had no problems with the crampons etc. The crawl through the ice cave was different and exciting.
We had a great time on the walk and our guide Andrew was excellent. He told us stories about how the glacier got its Maori and English names, told us about the features of the glacier, and guided us through some tricky portions with patience and good advice. He also had a great sense of humor. It's amazing being on the glacier, and we were lucky to get a chance to do so due to good weather it was raining on previous days. Highly recommend going if you're moderately physically fit.
