West Coast

Glacier Country West Coast New Zealand

Franz Josef Glacier & Fox Glacier

Experience living remnants of the last Ice Age. See a stunning landscape hewn by ice. Walk in flora "...as beautiful, as mysterious, as rich in elemental spirit as any left on earth." See rare forest and seabird species. Seal colonies too!

All in one place! South Westland will change forever the way you think of the environment.

Here you are in some of the most special and beautiful country in the world and that's why this region has been given World Hertiage Park Status. What is so special about Fox Glacier and Franz Josef Glacier is that they descend almost into the forest -- a mere 12 kilometres from the sea. Twelve kilometres in the opposite direction takes us to the top of New Zealand's highest peaks! Glaciers have shaped all of this country. Beautiful lakes have been left behind by previous ice age retreats and the low hills are old moraines.

There are many ways for the traveller to experience "Glacier Country", no matter what your fitness level or budget or the weather!
