Glacier Climbing

The Westland of New Zealand's South Island is filled with lush rainforest, and glacial-carved valleys. Two easily accessible glaciers remain in this area Fox and Franz Josef - and they form a hub for tourists and adventure activities. We did a short walk to view Franz Josef and then...
