    had a superb time on my trip with flying kiwi...fantastic guides, amazing memories and absolutely loved the heli hike on a glacier....a definite must and worth the exta money over the normal hike. the mix of people on the trip was great with a most people travelling solo but also a few small groups mainly from europe but also a few south americans - made loads of great friends and one of the best parts of the trip. if your thinking of it just go for it... you wont regret it :)

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • November 1, 2016

      Please can you tell me more about the type of accommodation on this trip?

      This is a camping based tour and accommodation is made in tents on a shared basis (2 people of the same gender per tent).

      There are options to upgrade to a single tent or cabins (in most locations) for an additional cost. The cost ranges from $10-$45 per night for a cabin with shared facilities to $25-$120 per night for an ensuite upgrade. These are subject to availability at the time of booking.

      However, please note that if you would be travelling during the school holidays and general peak season, there is a good chance, that upgrades will not be available at all campsites anymore.

    • July 1, 2016

      Do we stay in camps during the tour? Is there a way to upgrade the accommodation?

      There are 4 nights where we stay in wilderness camps with no cabin upgrade options, so you are required to camp over there those nights.

    • January 1, 2016

      Is there an upgrade available for the accommodations?

      To pre-book a cabin upgrades there is a one off Pre-booking Service Fee. You can upgrade to a basic double room with shared bathroom which will cost you per night, or upgrade to an en-suite room (where possible as not all camps have en-suite rooms) will also cost you per night.

      Once your Flying Kiwi tour is confirmed, we then contact each accommodation provider to check their availability and confirm costs. Please note all upgrades are subject to availability.
