Are you planning a trip to New Zealand? Wondering how to plan a route to see all the most beautiful places? Or do you want to know how much this trip to New Zealand may cost?

Visiting Glacier Country – Franz Josef or Fox Glacier?

Franz Josef or Fox Glacier - are you wondering how they differ? Which one should you visit? Check our experiences in Glacier Country, NZ.

Franz Josef or Fox Glacier? Which one to choose? Our plans for visiting the Westland National Park were (as usual!) very ambitious… Of course, we had to visit both 🙂 New Zealand glaciers are one of the country’s greatest attractions, next to a kiwi bird and spectacular fjords. Even, if your time is limited and you have to pick only one glacier, you still can’t miss this place.

things to do in catlins - catlins attractions
