    5.0 - Excellent

    The Alpine Explorer tour was full of awesome outdoor activities which showcased the amazing New Zealand South Island mountains and lakes. My wish list of skiing, hiking, and horse riding were ticked off but unfortunately the optional Franz Josef Heli Ice Walk was cancelled due to bad weather. However, our tour driver arranged a hike to view the glacier instead.
