  • Worth a visit, and 35 minutes back and forth, glacier by helicopter, landing on a glacier pictures, special experience. Adult s $330, children have a 70 percent discount. Not many tourists in this season, can be scheduled to start at any time.

  • This was a great place to get lost for a little bit of time. Trekked through here while trying to kill some time waiting out a storm to pass.  more »
  • Expect to get wet feet. Headlamp is important but even if you dont have one you can hike a few meters in. My 9 year old loved it. Easy hike to get there 30-minutes or so from start.  more »

  • Beautiful scenery during the walk till the end. At the end is the hanging bridge crossing the beautiful bluish river. Unfortunately the going on must stop to the end of the bridge. Walking up the hill and down to the river bank takes about 40 minutes from Franz Josef village. Highly recommended for the nature lovers!
  • Nice walk much of it on a gravel road, the last part more of a trail. Trail is through the forest, so no views. Nice bird songs but the forest is pretty dense and I was not able to see any.
  • Nice hike. At night you can see glow works on the right hand side.
  • Short but really nice walk. You will end up in a bridge and after you need to return. But it's a nice swing bridge to get a beautiful view of the river.
  • Easy to get to the start of this walk from the town and about 45 min walk to the bridge across the gorge with good view of the river below. The bridge is closed at the far end and you have to return the same way.
