Franz Josef Glacier Tours

Glacier Valley Eco Tours, Franz Josef, NZ

Nestled in the middle of beautiful South Westland you will find New Zealand's own glacier country, home to spectacular glaciers, pristine rivers, primeval forests, towering mountains and unique wetlands. Let us take you to explore this area and all its natural beauty.

Our tours are especially designed for clients who want to learn about the wonders of this incredible natural environment. We can tailor-make tours to suit individuals, couples, family groups and tour parties.

Glacier Valley Eco Tours hold a Department of Conservation license to operate guided tours in the South Westland World Heritage area. We provide guests with quality, informative, friendly and relaxed eco-style tours.

Remember: South Westland is a rainforest setting and at times the climate can be very wet. Don't let the rain keep you indoors. We provide good quality raincoats, large umbrellas and hot drinks and snacks on all our tours. You will be surprised how much fun it is out in the rain!



"We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and it was the high point of our trip to New Zealand. We got some terrific photos despite the rain - actually the weather makes the glacier all the more mystical."

Art and Colleen Sheinberg, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA

"Eco Tours provided our family with a safe, informative and, according to our son, a 'super awesome' day at the glacier."
