Couldn't have been better

Cliff was our guide and was absolutely brilliant! Learnt a lot about the valley, had some gorgeous views and shared some hilarious stories. He adapted the tour to suite the 3 of us. Was nice to be taken off the beaten track :)

Good Tour, Great Rain Gear

We had a great time on the tour, in spite of the very wet weather. The guides were very knowledgeable and helpful, but more importantly, they provided us with heavy duty rain gear.

Perfect Eco Tour

The guide was engaging and provided interesting information. I'm still recounting facts to friends when I share pictures. Having the opportunity to take special detours made things more exciting than walking the public path. Honestly, I wouldn't have the same appreciation for the Franz Josef Glacier if I didn't take this tour.

Had a great time

Lisa was our tour guide. She took us through non-public paths and shared much information about the ecosystem in Franz Josef. This made the walk to the glacier much more than a pretty view. Highly recommended!

Glacier walk as unique experience

Lisa is a wonderful person and the perfect guide for this walk. We could enjoy private trails to the glacier - and this in a very small group. Lisa told us a lot about the botany in the rain forest, the special geology there and gave us all important information about glaciers. We have really enjoyed the privacy and the amazing atmosphere. Thank you so much.
