Franz Josef - 3 Hour Sunset Kayak Safari

One of the most stunning sights is watching the western sun set over New Zealand's famous snow encrusted high peaks, - from the serenity of your stable kayak.

This is about as far from city life as one can get on this planet!.

Embark on our original Kayak Classic adventure a bit later in the day to enjoy Lake Mapourika's unbeatable sunset.

3 hours of gentle exercise and an unbeatable panoramic view of the Southern Alps and glaciers. A premium tour only available during the summer months. This is the best way to end your day in Glacier Country!

Please note that on rare occasions not withstanding all reasonable efforts by the operator, this trip may be shifted in time due to weather and or on rare occasions may be cancelled. In this event a 100% full refund will be offered.

Please also note that the sunset departure times range between 4.30pm and 5.30pm. Please call or email us the night before to check the current Sunset Classic departure times. We change these times to catch the sunsets as daylight hours change.

Awesome experience for everyone!

This was a truly wonderful afternoon. I went with 2 of my kids aged 11 and 15. Everyone goes in double kayaks, so one of my kids was paired up with one of the super friendly guides. People in the tour ranged from zero experience to pretty good kayakers - anyone can do it. The guides who took us there were great. They looked after us, took care of everything from insect repellent, through transport to setting up and packing up the kayaks for us. They were fun, friendly and knowledgeable, and provided the added value of a good guide to the amazing experience of rowing on this serene and beautiful lake. They even took photos for us. The highlight of our west coast trip this year!

Excellent Trip

We had the luck that were only 2 People on the tour and the guide had an excellent sense of humor. He even took free pictures of us which we recieved the following day. The whole trip was really outstanding.

Appalling Weather

I appreciate that when booking it says the kayaks go out rain or shine, but the weather was so bad my friend and I could not believe it when the experience wasn’t cancelled. We chose not to go because we wouldn’t have seen anything and imagined it would have been more miserable than fun.
