What to Expect
Travel reference:

With the combination of an exhilarating helicopter ride, jaw-dropping scenery and a 3 hour hike through the most spectacular glacier features, you will have an unforgettable experience here!

Your journey starts at our glacier base in Franz Josef Village where our friendly team will check you in, get you kitted out with the essential gear and give you a pre-trip briefing. From here, your guide will lead you a on a short walk through native forest to the heli pad and get you ready to board your helicopter. As you board your helicopter, you will have an opportunity to take in the full panoramic majesty of Kā Roimata o Hine Hukatere nestled within the surrounding mountains.

Your pilot will land you high up on the glacier where your guide will help you make the final preparations for your hike before you head off to explore the pristine features of this incredible icescape. During your hike your guide will share with you the story of Kā Roimata o Hine Hukatere, their knowledge of the glacier and surrounding area and insight on why Franz Josef is so unique. You'll come away from your trip not only with a sense of awe at this majestic beauty, but a whole new understanding of why this precious landmark is so special.

After that, you also have a chance to relax in a hot spring main pool! So book your guided glacier experience online with us now!
