This is a fantastic introduction to an enthralling world of ice. A short heli hop from the township takes you into the remarkable Pinnacles area of the glacier. Here your guide will navigate you through a maze of ice and explain the dramatic environmental changes over the last few years. You will explore the awe-inspiring landscape in this incredible experience through Franz Josef Glacier.
Sometimes even the best plans don't work out - sometimes helicopters don't fly. If your tour is cancelled due to weather, Franz Josef Glacier Guides will automatically transfer you onto our Glacier Valley Walk the same day. There is no obligation to participate and you can cancel at any time. We just want to make sure you don't miss out on a great glacier experience.
Includes FREE ENTRY into the Main Pools at the fabulous Glacier Hot Pools! OR upgrade on checkout to a Private Pool for just $38 (for 2 people)
Had a great ice explorer adventure then did the Tatare tunnel walk. This walk isn't on TA yet,
but we found it in the local map. It involves a 30 minute walk to the tunnel itself...more
A must do for any intrepid traveler. Put on the crampons and venture up to
the peak of the Glacier for some spectacular views....more
The walk is challenging as the glaciers are quite high up
but the views are astounding and well worth it!...more
This was a wonderful tour and one of our favorite and most memorable trips during our three
week vacation in New Zealand...more
