Safe but adventurous and challenging way to experience glacier. Guide is knowledgeable and attentive.Reviewed by: WENXIAN C, January 2014
We really enjoyed the Franz Josef Glacier walk. The guide was excellent and we had a blast.Reviewed by: Ameet M, January 2014
Simply a must do when in Franz Josef if the weather allows. Our guide was very friendly and helpful, she cleared paths with her ice pick to make the hike easier, lent a helping hand on the steeper obstacles and even took group photos for us. The scenery is amazing and exploring the paths, stairs and caves is real experience. The hike itself was no trouble at all for average fitness people, if you can walk and climb stairs you can do it, the crampons and the guide do all the hard work for you. We went during summer so didn't need many extra layers, most on the tour had to take off the gore-tex jackets.Reviewed by: Martin N, January 2014
Trip was initially cancelled due to the weather. Re-scheduled for the following day and was worth the 2hr drive to get back to Franz Josef.
Well organised and would recommend.Reviewed by: Lee Edwards, January 2014
The helicopter ride to the glacier was awesome! The glacier walk was fun but I wish we would have been able to go farther up the glacier. Overall, would recommend this tour. It was a unique experience!Reviewed by: Adrienne R, January 2014
