Tourist attractions Franz Josef Glacier
Found in the Tai Poutini National Park, this is one of the most famous glaciers in New Zealand, along with the Fox Glacier, also located in the same park in the New Zealand Alps. The Franz Josef Glacier falls from the Alps down the western coast of South Island nearly all the way to the Tasmanian Sea. To enjoy the best view, take a helicopter tour or take a hike in the surroundings.
