Franz Josef, New Zealand
Franz Josef is a very small town located in the west coast region of the south island of New Zealand.
Franz Josef Glacier
With landscaping ranging from no snow to snow patches to fully-covered in snow, there are two glaciers to take advantage of – Franz Josef Glacier (the town’s namesake) and Fox Glacier. In addition to visiting the two glaciers, you can take a helicopter ride and gain a magnificent aerial view of what’s below. Or if you enjoy the free-fall, you can also go skydiving and acquire an aerial view. Off-roading is another option, as well as riding horses, all with an outstanding and overwhelming backdrop.
