HOW TO GET THE BEST EXPERIENCES OUT OF YOUR BACKPACKER BUDGET
We all know what it’s like; you’re backpacking around the globe, trying to cram every amazing experience in while trying to keep a rein on your shoestring budget. And now, you’ve hit New Zealand and you’ve realised just how many incredible adventure activities there are to do, not to mention the adrenalin thrills, the stunning sights to see, the treks to hike – oh, and you need to squeeze in a few (or more) big nights out. That backpacker budget has to stretch a long way when you’re trying to experience the best things to do in New Zealand. And so the question is; should I spend the money on a glacier heli-hike when I hit Franz Josef?
SHOULD I STRETCH MY BACKPACKER BUDGET AND DO A GLACIER HELI HIKE TRIP?
Well, for the answer to this, how about we check in with Melissa Warshavsky over at her blog For Twenties Travellers. Melissa’s blog documents some of the great travel spots she’s visited, as well as some helpful tips and tricks when backpacking across the globe. Melissa recently did a Heli Hike with Franz Josef Glacier Guides and in her blog, she says that yes, it was worth every penny. A Heli Hike option with Franz Josef Glacier Guides may cost you more than a few cold beers, but some things are just worth it.
But make sure you check out the options we have at Franz Josef Glacier Guides. Be cost savvy, you want the once in a life time experience and the best value for money? Consider our ice climbing trip. Its the best of both worlds as you get more time on ice and get to go climbing, but still offers you the change to explore features as in the Heli Hike product, just for a little extra!
DON’T MISS OUT ON ONE OF NEW ZEALAND’S MOST UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCES
Have a look at the stunning photos Melissa has shared of her glacier hike. There’s only one thing better than looking at the pictures on this blog, and that’s getting up there to see it for yourself. No matter what your budget is, it’s not worth missing out on one of New Zealand’s most unforgettable experiences. Thanks, Melissa, for sharing your blog.
