4 Ways to View the Amazing Glaciers

The West Coast of New Zealand is a rugged and untouched landscape and one of the most significant natural attractions are Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers.

Here are 4 ways for you to visit these spectacular attractions:

Scenic Flight with snow landing - This is one of the ultimate ways for viewing the glaciers! Helicopter trips up to the top are simply amazing. Enjoy the beautiful journey up and then jump out of the helicopter onto the snow laden glacier. A real once in a lifetime experience!

Heli-Hike - For those looking to add a bit of adventure to their glacier visit then a Heli-hike is for you. Once you land at the top of the glacier, the experienced guides will take you through towers of ice and you'll gains views only possible on this experience.

Self Guided Walk - Both glaciers give visitors great vantage points without having to spend any money. There are long walks up to great viewing points for each glacier or shorter alternatives if required,

Guided Glacier Walk - If you're up for a little extra than a self guided walk then take a guided glacier walk. Follow an experienced guide and learn the history of the area as well as the the formation of the glacier.

Visit the Glacier Country website for all information about the Glaciers and how to see them!
