FRANZ JOSEF GLACIER

Helicopter onto Franz Josef Glacier and discover the glacier by foot!
1/3
DESCRIPTION:

The magnificent Franz Josef Glacier is widely regarded as the gem of New Zealand's West Coast Glaciers, and one of the most impressive sights to be found anywhere in the world.
Take a scenic helicopter flight from Franz Josef township to the glacier. From there follow your guide on the ice through many formations that are constantly changing as the glacier moves through the valley.

PRICE INCLUDES:

All clothing - breathable rain jacket, water proof over pants, socks and sturdy footwear, crampons and a woolly hat and gloves if needed.

Do NOT wear jeans on the Heli Hike, as this will restrict your range of movement on the ice.

DON'T FORGET:

If you have any previous medical conditions (ankle injuries, knee injuries or ACL damage, joint replacement, dislocations, neck or back injuries, heart conditions, blood pressure medication, diabetes and asthma) let one of our staff know before booking this activity.

OUR STAFF HOT TIPS:

Don't forget to charge up your camera devices as you wont want to miss a second! Also make sure to bring sunglasses! 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

Trips depart from Franz Josef township, however we may arrange trips with a scenic flight to Franz.

For safety on the glacier, maximum weight of 115kg or individuals who is, or may be, pregnant.
