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.

Great experience, great guide but expensive, $395 per person. Not suitable for unfit people, look for discount vouchers in magazines, brochures and at i-sites.
