Did you walk away from your Franz Josef Glacier Guides’ glacier hike thinking, “Oh my goodness, that was the best thing I’ve done in New Zealand”? Uh huh? Well, then you better get over to the Golden Backpack Awards and put that sentiment on the vote. The Golden Backpack Awards 2014 is now open, and the exciting news is that anyone who votes goes in the draw to win a trip for two to the Whitsundays including flights with Tiger Airways.
The awards are a way to recognise companies that go the extra mile for those backpacking around Australia and New Zealand. There’s no doubt that there is a heap of amazing experiences to do for backpackers who travel this region. At Franz Josef Glacier Guides, we feel pretty privileged to be able to share this once in a lifetime experience of glacier hiking. Everyday our guests return with beaming smiles, reminding us that this trip is so unique. A lot of people say that glacier hiking is a travel bucket list item, and we’ve been able to help them tick it off the list!
So have your say on who you think is the best tour/activity in New Zealand. Just head on over to the TNT Golden Backpack Awards voting page and vote for the companies who work so hard to make backpacking in the region an amazing experience. Give Franz Josef Glacier Guides your vote for best Tour/Activity – New Zealand and we’ll cross our fingers and toes that you win the trip for two to the Whitsundays. Good luck to us all! The awards will be announced in October or November, the exact date to be announced soon!
