Guide was passionate and informative. Overall great experience and highly recommend!
Just a tip, tour information says to wear 3-5 layers of upper body clothing underneath the jacket and pants they provide you with, this is really not necessary on hot days or in summer months. We did the tour in December and could have gotten away with shorts and a t-shirt!

This tour was amazing! From the helicopter to our tour guide Nathan! We had such a great time exploring the glacier ! Highly recommended. The hot pools at the end were a nice finish as well.

Amazing trip! From the helicopter ride there to walking around! I would recommend this to everyone. With a small group i can only imagine that it's a quicker trip around the glacier than it would be with a larger group. We had a few slower walkers which worked out well for us because we were up front and got to stop and enjoy the scenery. Our guide, George, was awesome and he made it fun too!

Helicopter ride was fantastic. Really appreciated our Kiwi guide - seemed more authentic (Maori pronunciation and all).
Weather was perfect on the day. Great trip all up - highlight of our travels.

We really enjoyed the Franz Josef Glacier walk. The guide was excellent and we had a blast.
Recensione di: Martin N , gennaio 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.

This was a lot of fun. Our guide was great. This particular tour takes you up on the glacier, a bit lower than the HeliHike option. Also, the helicopter ride is a quick 5-10 minute flight to the glacier, I believe the Heli Hike gives your more airtime but less glacier time. Highly recommend this tour, we wanted to be on the glacier longer so that's why we picked this one.

Despite an event where one of the participants took to altitude sickness and had to be helicoptered down , all else went smoothly. The guide did quite well at explaining equipment and technique. I would rate this experience as one of the most exciting for me.

Perfect tour!!! I enjoyed the helicopter flight and the walk! I personally have acrophobia, but surprisingly i weren't scared within the flight, since the Pilot drive it very very stable, i keep taking photos of the beautiful scenery almost forgot i was in the air. Our guide is very handsome according to all our girls! Especially when he was running on the ice really fast, like teleport! he was leading in front of us with his hammer, to make us walk safe and easier. It is really easy and safe walk with a very little tiny adventure!
I was wearing a thermal underwear, a knit sweaters, and a ultralight down jacket, then on top with their provided gore-tex jacket! but after 20 mins i started feel hot, and wanted to throw all them away, i think i don't need that much next time since the walk keep your body really warm, that's why the guide only wear a short pants!
If you are a photographer and wants to take much photos and don't want to damaged your camera, just make sure you have the waterproof cover/case/bag for your camera, cause mine was half dead in the middle of the walk, since was too cold and the water drop from some of the ice in the cave. if you just want to take photo with your phone, just make sure you have the waterproof cover for your phone as well!
For this walk, they provide you a bag, you can put some food or water, for my opinion since this is not long, and you don't really have time to sit down to have a snack or something, just make sure you have enough food before the walk (there's a nice cafe just next to the registration, have food there!), then bring a bottle of water and a camera and your id, that's it, oh of course a hat and sunglasses! don't bring anything else heavy will keep you walk clumsy!!
I really love this walk!!! So much fun!!! 100% Satisfied!
