Service rating:

I booked heli ice climbing at franz joseph glacier as a birthday present for my partner. however 1day before i called the glacier guides and they cancelled, due to not enough participants. they said that it's actually hardly ever booked by somebody, so why was it still offered? and why have we not been informed pro-actively that the tour cannot take place? we would have planned our driving tour differently if we would hv known little earlier

Product rating:

it didn't take place.

Thanks for your comments and I'm so sorry to hear that the ice climbing did not go ahead. That must have been really disappointing for you. We were not aware at the time of the booking that it was not confirmed as this was not relayed to us by Franz Josef Glacier Guides.

The glaciers have changed a lot over the last few years with the melting ice so many of the trips have ceased operating or have changed to an alternative. We used to sell a lot of the straight up ice climbing (with no helicopter flight) but that stopped running a little while ago due to the changing ice conditions so the Glacier Guides started offering the heli ice climbing as an option. Thank you so much for the feedback, I have now deactivated the listing.

Once again, I sincerely apologise for the inconvenience and disruption this has caused.

Kind regards,
Callum Goodall

Latest Questions about Heli Ice Climbing - Franz Josef Glacier Guides (Franz Josef)

Hi - how long is the helicopter flight on the ice climb please? Is it a tour as such I.e. pointing things out or just a means to getting to a place. How big are the climbs please? What are the group sizes? What is the weather like currently, have the trips been running? Thanks


Heya, The flight will be 10 mins each way approx. I would describe it as more of a transport to the location but the pilot does sometimes point out some of their favourite things and the journey is fantastic! There is a max of 1 guide to every four guests. The trips have been running and the weather has been great!
