Whether you're looking for the epic views and ice formations of our world famous Glacier Heli Hike, the adrenaline highs of a Heli Ice Climb or to explore the beautiful Waiho valley on our Glacier Valley Walk, we have the ultimate glacier adventure for you.

We provide all essential equipment including waterproof jackets and boots as well as a highly skilled local guide to lead you through the spectacular glacier terrain. For over 140 years guests to South Westland have been guided on the Franz Josef Glacier and we are proud to continue this guiding tradition.

Join us on one of the world's most incredible glacier environments for an experience you'll never forget.
