The twin glaciers of the West Coast in New Zealand, Fox Glacier and Franz Josef Glacier, are both some of the most incredible natural sights and resources in the coast. You’ll be viewing both of them on a scenic helicopter flight lasting for 30 minutes. Fox Glacier is less inclined than Franz Glacier, and you’ll see it’s sprawling ice arches, ice trekking trails, and even the beautiful alpine wild lands around it in Chancellor Dome. Franz Josef Glacier is a rugged beauty, of steeper incline, and with regions largely inaccessible from the world save for air drop ins. After admiring the bird’s eye views from above, you’ll set down on one of the glaciers to enjoy their beauty from ground level. Feel the snow and enjoy the frigid temperatures under the sun. Don’t forget to take plenty of photos of these two marvelous glaciers before heading back!
