"I love to see people going on Heli hikes enjoying what we have on the West Coast, coming back and just being absolutely amazed. I always get to catch up with them once they get back, have a small chat on how their day was, and it's just good to see that they're going to go home knowing that they have done what they wanted to do." 

Calib Gurden (Ngāi Tahu - Ngāi Te Ruahikihiki) works for Franz Josef Glacier Guides and Franz Josef Hot Pools as a customer services representative. In his last year of high school, Calib's tourism class went on a school trip to Queenstown and after seeing how much fun the workers and customers were having Calib decided to pursue a career in tourism. He is at the beginning of his journey and hopes to continue to develop within the industry.
