Kayaking - Franz Josef Wilderness Tours Franz Josef


Latest Questions about Kayaking - Franz Josef Wilderness Tours (Franz Josef)

What Kayaking skills would we need for this?


Thank you for your question about Kayaking - Franz Josef Wilderness Tours. The Kayaking skills will be basic ones which you will be taught on the day by your guide, you do not have to have kayak experience, beginners are welcomed. If you prefer to do less then it is recommended to do a morning departure as the lake is very calm and still most of the time dependent on the weather.

Hi, we want to know is it possible to play kayaking now? will it be too cold? Any clothes you provide?Eg: s<em>&^</em>s? rain coat?


Hi Connie. Yes, the kayaking in Franz Josef is available all year. It is quite cold during winter however you are given waterproof jackets, gloves & beanies and if you wear warm clothes then you will still really enjoy the tour. Sometimes the wind can pick up in the afternoon so I recommend booking the morning tour if you want a calmer and warmer experience.

Hi... we are 4 adults and a child 10 yo.. are the kayaks for 2 people? is there a way for 4+1 kayaking?


Hi Zerman. If you book the Glacier Kayak Tours in Franz Josef then there are double and single kayaks available so we can certainly accommodate for the 5 of you. Children can go with a parent and then someone else can kayak solo or the child can go with the guide in a double kayak allowing the 4 adults to kayak in 2 double kayaks.
