Glacier Walks - Glacier Guides Franz Josef


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

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.


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.
