New Zealand – West Coast
You may be wondering – should I go to Fox Glacier or Franz Josef Glacier?
Check this link to Glacier Country – a visitor guide to both Fox Glacier and Franz Josef Glacier. It gives you an overview of both glaciers and what you can do there.
A quick rundown
- Franz Josef Glacier is bigger and have more viewing platforms
- Fox Glacier may be smaller but you can get a much closer view of the glacier
- There are more hiking options in Franz Josef Glacier
- In Fox Glacier, you have Lake Matheson whereas in Franz Josef Glacier you have Lake Mapourika
On Franz Josef Glacier, I didn’t get many good shots since it was raining very heavily. Here are some snapshots.
There is a reason for all that greenery!

The next question goes – which fiord to see – Milford Sound or Doubtful Sound? Pictures from Doubtful Sound here. I’ll come back to Milford Sound in another post.
The weekend is here! Have fun!
