REVIEWS

“It’s a brilliant place to do some kayaking. The guides are great, the lake is beautiful and so peaceful, you’ll love it. Don’t think twice about it, it’s worth it.”

– Trip Advisor

“A fabulous way to spend an afternoon after heli-hiking in the morning. The contrast from glacier to rainforest is stunning. We paddled up the most beautiful and peaceful tributary of the lake, deep into the rainforest and it felt like we were in another world. Our guide was fantastic, so informative, helpful and encouraging. The kayaks were very comfortable and the paddling easy, even across the windswept lake, a real adventure. Definitely a must-do when in the Franz Josef area.”

– Wendy B. Gold Coast Australia
