Embark on a guided journey through the iconic Franz Josef Glacier Valley to discover its remarkable landscape and fascinating history - a NZ must do!
Prepare for the adventure of a lifetime as you embark on a journey along an ancient path of where the glacier once stood in Franz Josef Glacier Valley.
Your experienced guide will lead the way, as you begin the hike adjacent to the Waiho Riverbed and climb toward the mighty Franz Josef Glacier itself.
You'll encounter breath-taking scenery illustrating the path of retreat the Glacier has taken over time, including waterfalls and ancient temperate rainforests plus there's plenty of unique flora and fauna to discover along the way.
The glacier's history is absolutely intriguing as is the legend of Ka Roimata o Hinehukatere of which your experienced guide will enlighten you on.
Near the end of the walk after a brief climb you will be rewarded with spectacular views of the rapidly changing terminal face of the glacier, which offer stunning photographic opportunities.
There has never been a more extraordinary time to visit Franz Josef Glacier, one of New Zealand's "must see" natural sights.
Location: 63 Cron Street, Franz Josef Village
