Franz Josef - Glacier Valley Walk

Franz Josef Glacier Guides who operate the Glacier Valley Walk have been advised by the Department of Conversation that road access for the Glacier Valley Walk will be restored in about 6 to 7 weeks. As a result, the Glacier Valley Walk will resume operation on July 1st  2019 (or earlier) subject to road access. If this date changes, we will provide an update accordingly.  

During this period, Franz Josef Glacier Guides will be operating an extended full-day walk to access the Franz Josef Glacier Valley. More details on this walk to follow in the coming week but Franz Josef Glacier Guides are anticipating it to be about 8 hours in duration.

The Franz Josef Heli Hike and Franz Josef Glacier Hot Pools remain fully operational as normal.
