Franz Josef Glacier Things to Do: 58 reviews and 107 photos

  See... I got the certificate!
by I-Believe-I-Can-Fly

We joined a half-day walks on the glacier runs by Franz Josef Glacier Guides, which took about 4 hours on the ice.

They supplied all the gears needed, such as boots and Ice Talonz, Gore-tex jackets, mittens, beanies and wollen socks.

I hired thermal over-trouser for NZ$5 and I was glad I did since in the middle of our walk, the rain showered the glaciers. The area is one of the rainiest in NZ.
