The trip was cancelled due to poor weather. Received a full refund. They are flexible and accommodating. Employees were friendly and helpful to provide alternative options.

Sadly due to torrential rain on the west coast this booking was cancelled but because of these guys and girls we were warned to keep moving up the coast as the weather was closing in. So they deserve a 10 for giving the best advise. Cheers people

Easy walk because you use crampons to walk on the ice! Stunning landscape! Guides are very friendly and a unique experience!

Heli hike on Franz Josef. Amazing scenery, great helicopter ride. Friendly staff and informative guide. Expensive but worth it.

4 hour tour on the glaciers with helicopter dropoff. Very spectacular and good tour. It was pricey $299pp.
