The West coast of the South Island has a lot to offer, however the highlight by far has to be a glacier hike. Full and half day options are available to take you on a guided tour up a moving glacier, walk down cravace and experience an amazing day trip that you will remember forever.
The two main options are the Fox glacier and Franz Josef, both offering incredible, once in a lifetime climbs, to help you decide which one to take on or to give you a taste of both, check out www.glaciercountry.co.nz
We put the hike of a glacier as an absolute must do to those of you travelling NZ. We really suggest you do a full day hike, you'll get to see waterfalls and rainforests while standing on a glacier in your shorts. Simply amazing.
