A first-hand exploration of a glacier by chopper, seeing only what experienced mountaineers can reach is a wilderness experience you?ll never forget.

From our Franz Josef Village base, you?ll fly up to the Franz Josef Glacier in the Westland National Park. You?ll land on a section of this 12km long glacier where we?ve made a daily safety assessment of the conditions on this fast-moving ice flow. Equipped with glacier boots and crampons you?ll walk for two hours amongst the ice formations and pinnacles and see first-hand the extraordinary colours of the ice-flow. Touch the ice, breathe in the fresh air.

We team up with Franz Josef Glacier Guides who have been taking visitors over this epic icefall terrain since 1990 and can trace their heritage back 100 years. They have an immaculate safety record, rigid assessments and using quality equipment, your safety and enjoyment is taken care of.
