Twin Glaciers: Franz Josef & Fox Glacier
Starting from our base in Franz Josef township, fly over the spectacular Franz Josef Glacier and further on to the Fox Glacier.
Be mesmerised by the azur blue ice, deep crevasses and rugged seracs. Climb high about the snow-laden Southern Alps(Ka Tiritiri o te Moana) before enjoying a snow landing. A great photo opportunity awaits as you disembark onto snow, for approximately 10 minutes.
As you depart, the landscape transforms into rainforest, with crystal clear waterfalls descending from the mountains. Enjoy panoramic views of the Tasman Sea as you return to Franz Josef township.
