Latest Questions about Glacier Walks - Glacier Guides (Franz Josef)

How long is the helicopter ride?

Comments

Hi Shauna. The helicopter flight as part of the Ice Explorer hike at Franz Josef Glacier is just a short heli hop of 5 minutes or so. The helicopter flight on the Heli Hike tour is about twice as long and takes you to the most spectacular ice formations where you can see blue ice.

my husband and I are 50 and would love to do the explorer later this month but not sure what moderate fitness means to u guys- we are quite active but not what u would call fit

Comments

Hi Judith, moderate fitness requires you to be able to walk comfortably for 3 hours. The walking is not non stop, there are plenty of photo stops. The terrain is undulating and you would have crampons on which will be a little heavier than your normal shoes. There are also numerous sets of stairs to climb as well. So, if you feel comfortable that you could walk for 3 hours and also walk easily up and down the stairs then you will be fine with the Ice Explorer.

What time do the walks commence and approximately how long is the "round-trip"? Are there morning and/or afternoon guided walks? I am visiting in mid-March.

Comments

Hi Colin. There are several different hikes available on Franz Josef Glacier starting with the Glacier Valley walk which doesn't spend any time actually on the glacier, to the Ice Explorer which includes a short heli flight to the start of the glacier and 3 hours walking on the actual glacier, and the Heli Hike which takes you to the best & most pristine glacier scenery available and involves 2 hours hiking. There are several departures daily however I recommend booking the morning departure as this is often when there is the best weather. There is some more detailed information in the listing on our website.
