Franz Josef Tours – New Years Day 2016

Franz Josef Tours – New Years Day 2016

by | Jan 8, 2016

New Years day we were blessed with a hot sunny day, and stunning mirror lake conditions!

We took out a family from Australia and a Photographer from Christchurch!  Have a look at the snaps Dale managed to take with our company camera (not quite as flash as some on board!)10

The kids had a blast, look at that view out the window!  And they were even able to have a go at being the Captain …

Clive was the Photographer from Christchurch and was able to capture some amazing photos as well.  He’s sent us a couple which we’ll display next week.  You can check out more of his work HERE.

Clive was kind enough to email us back with appreciation, and also emailed us a review:

“On a day that might have gone unnoticed, because it was New Year’s Eve 2016, I luckily by chance pulled into the lay-by at Lake Mapourika. The Hanna-K was moored at the jetty and Dale the operator of Franz Josef Tours was on deck. A invitation for me to join the next day’s9.00am cruise was accepted due to the expectant clear sunny day. The cruise turned out to be the most breathtaking two hours I had ever encountered. Lake Mapourika has a tendency to deliver very calm peaceful waters providing an amazingly clean and clear reflection of the Southern Alps. As a photographer it was pure delight for me. The hospitality and friendliness provided on board the Hanna-K was supreme and every bit of the voyage was pleasurable. I can only say don’t miss this experience where ever you might be travelling, it beats all else for pristine panoramas of our beautiful country. Clive Collins, Christchurch”.

Thanks to all that came on board … and if you’d like to book your next Scenic Cruise on the Lake:
