Description de l'activité

Franz Josef Glacier provides some of the most stunning ‘ice architecture’ of any Glacier in the world. The Glacier was in a state of advance until 2008 when it started retreating. Following a spectacular collapse of the terminal face in 2012, it is now only accessible by helicopter.

The Franz Josef Glacier is known as ‘Ka Roimata o Hinehukatere’ in Maori which means ‘The Tears of Hinehukatere.’ As the legend goes, Hinihukatere had a passion and skill for climbing. Whilst not shared by her lover, Wawe, he liked to be by her side so ventured forth anyway. However, an avalanche soon swept him from the peaks to an untimely death. Hinihukatere was heartbroken and the tears flowed uncontrollably but as they flowed down the mountain they froze, forming the glacier.

Twice the ice! Explore by helicopter the ancient icefalls of not one but two glaciers - Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers. The pilots get you up close to the unique ice formations and neves. Experience the thrill of a snow landing that sets you up for some spectacular photo opportunities and unforgettable memories.
