Franz Josef wilderness Tours is locally owned and operated business. Bronwyn and Dale have built Franz Josef wilderness Tours (formerly Glacier Country Kayaks) up to the well- recognized business it is today.
Bronwyn, originally from Canada, has been kayaking for many years including multi-week trips around Vancouver Island. Dale has been an outdoor guide for over 13 years with 6 years spent as a Glacier Guide for the Franz Josef Glacier Guides, and a few seasons spent kayak guiding in Canada. Dale has spent his life as an outdoorsman in New Zealand, and is a qualified Maritime NZ Skipper. He is one of our lead guides and you might find him paddling, fishing or cruising on the water most days.

While guiding in Canada over a summer period, Bronwyn paddled into Dale. Bronwyn and Dale continued guiding in Canada and Stewart Island NZ, before taking over Franz Josef Tours in 2013 and Franz Josef Tours in 2015 and have brought them together to now be Franz Josef Wilderness Tours.
Franz Josef Wilderness Tours is teamed with an awesome crew from a range of backgrounds who have a wealth of knowledge and experience.
We can’t wait to show you our slice of paradise.
