Franz Josef Glacier is world renowned for its beauty, the point of difference being that the native rainforest exists right beside a prehistoric glacier, making for some amazing terrain and viewing. Glacier lakes and sea shore all are easily accessible in the area, fishing is also a popular pastime, as is kayaking and boat tours. Trampers are spoilt for choice, everything from a leisurely hour long stroll to an 8 hour more extreme climb. All tracks are well marked and maintained. Make sure you spare enough time in this magnificent area!
