General Information

New Zealand is without question, one of the most beautiful places on Earth. The country packs more diverse and spectacular scenery per square hectare that just about any other in the world. From the Waipoua Kauri Forest of the North Island to the glaciers of the South Island, the island nation is a paradise.

On the subject of glaciers, Westland National Park on the West Coast of the South Island has several for intrepid visitors to explore. The most popular are Fox Glacier and Franz Josef Glacier, both easily accessible from the township of Fox Glacier/Weheka. Though more drastic measures have been taken in recent years to curb the harmful effects of mass tourism and stem the retreat of the glacier ice, the park and indeed, glaciers themselves, remain near the top of New Zealand's natural wonders.
