About Glacier Valley Eco Tours Ltd deals.
Glacier Valley Eco Tours
Glacier Valley Eco Tours is a NZ locally owned & operated family business with 20 years of experience guiding in NZ national parks. We specialise in small-group guided walking tours in Glacier Country, West Coast New Zealand.
We provide guests with personal, informative and relaxed eco-style tours which walk at your pace, with plenty of opportunities to take photos, stand under waterfalls, hold ice out of the river and treasure hunt for native flowers, birds, mushrooms and wildlife. Stop for a cup of tea with magnificent views and a chat with your experienced guide. All our half day tours are suitable for all ages and abilities; backpackers, couples and families including young children.
Okarito Boat Eco Tours
We are a partner team – Swade and Paula – and we’ll tell you the stories of past and present that intertwine the history of this place with life in Okarito today. Through the waterways that make up the West Coast – from gold seekers of the 1860’s to flax milling and timber harvesting to the conservation work being undertaken today. We are so fortunate to call this magnificent place home – literally untouched by time. We hope you’ll take the step off the beaten path to visit Okarito.
We invite you to come and visit Okarito on one of our boat tours and experience the magic of this small village with the big landscapes – and New Zealand’s largest unmodified wetlands – over 3000 hectares, only a 25-minute drive from Franz Josef Glacier.
Yes! there are white herons here year round, as well as royal spoonbills – plenty of birdlife and so much more to see!
