Heli Hike Franz Josef Glacier


Heli Hike Franz Josef Glacier

449.00 486.00

Heli Hike the amazing Franz Josef Glacier, with a 15 minute helicopter ride each way, and 3 full hours hiking on paths cut out of the ice. Each day is different, and each route is different, as new paths must be made each week, but they are all equally amazing. It’s not just the ice and views that are out of this world- you also hear the ice thundering as it cracks and smashing into the glacier from higher up on the ice. Your guides will bring you through this ice filled landscape, where the hundreds of different hues in the ice will take your breath away- if the cold already hasn’t.
