Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers on West Coast

One of only two places in the world where you can view glaciers descending into temperate rainforest and the most accessible glaciers in the world make the Glacier Country a "must do".

You might be surprised to find that snow rarely falls in Franz Josef and Fox Glacier townships - but a whole lot of it falls in the nearby mountains, just what a glacier needs to produce ice. This ice pushes down the steep valleys into the forest, meaning you don't have to walk far to see an amazing West Coast ice cube.
