Franz Josef Glacier
Preporučuje 8 lokalaca
It's a river of ice that tumbles from the highest peaks of NZ. From Travels Rest is is about 8 km to the Franz Josef Glacier carpark. From there a 1.5 hr easy valley walk.
Worlds only glacier in a rain forest. See the ice, mountains, forests, lakes, native birds. Worlds longest alpine fault-line. Lake Matheson mirror lake with reflections of Mount Cook. Okarito beach and lagoon, White Heron Sanctuary. Kiwi sanctuary
Even though the Glacier is retreating - the helicopter trip onto the ice is a bucket moment.
