Scenery/Natural Sights - Fox/Franz Josep Glaciers, New Zealand [Glacier]

Back to Map 

Visited: Mid Jan

These two nearby glaciers reach far down from the Mt Cook icefields above to near sea level. The glaciers carve deep into the forested hillsides, with tracks leading up the valleys to near the glacier faces. With fine weather, Lake Matheson provides a good vantage point to see the glaciers falling steeply down from the moutains above.
