Activities

Franz Josef offers visitors an abundant choice of wonderful attractions combined with some of the most magnificent natural scenery in the world.

The attractions here include licensed alpine guides taking half-day icefall walks, allowing around one hour on the glacier. Full-day and heli-hiking trips visit the upper glacier, where the going is even more adventurous. Flightseeing is a popular alternative for viewing the glacier and flying over Aoraki Mt Cook and Mt Tasman, New Zealand's two highest peaks. Helicopter operators also land on the glacier nevé to give a first-hand experience of the vast ice basin. Popular walks to lookout points include Sentinel Rock, Douglas Walk, Alex Knob Track and Roberts Point Track.
