Franz Josef Glacier Guide has withdrawn full/half day tour

I just realized an update from a forum, the Franz Josef Glacier Guide had just withdrawn the full and half day hiking tour, is grieved to hear this news actually.

Below is the email from Franz Josef Glacier Guide which replied the reader's query:

"Unfortunately I cannot book a Full Day/Half Day hike for you, as we are not operating these tours from the 14th April onward. We have had some fairly substantial changes in our glacier here over the last 6 weeks which has meant we have had some issues regarding access to the glacier. Our operations team has made a call for safety reasons to cease all foot access onto the glacier.

We have started the Ice Explorer instead, a trip which includes helicopter transfers onto the ice. This includes direct flights to and from the glacier, and a three hour guided hike through the terrain at the top of the current Full Day area and beyond. This is $265 per person and is available from Thursday 12th April."


If you really want to have the experience on the hiking on full/half day tour, there is an alternative, which is FOX.
