When it comes to New Zealand, there is no shortage of incredible views to admire, with its glacial mountains provide some of the country’s most spectacular scenery.  Located in the south island of New Zealand, Fox Glacier and Franz Josef Glacier draw people in from far and wide – ourselves included.

Unfortunately, the weather was a bit ropey – we had originally planned to book onto a helicopter and hike tour (which looks incredible) but we decided not to hedge our bets as more-often-than-not they get cancelled due to bad weather.

Thankfully we did get a bit of decent weather towards the end of our stay and the snow-dusted mountains that had previously been concealed amongst dense fog revealed themselves.  The views were nothing short of incredible – easily some of the country’s most impressive.

If you visit the south island of New Zealand, I highly recommend checking out the impressive glaciers.  Franz Josef Glacier and Fox Glacier are about a half-hour drive away from each other, so it’s well worth seeing both.
