Hiking on the Franz Josef glacier
Advantages: Challenging, amazing views, doing something you will never forget!
...Franz Josef glacier is on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. Nowhere else in the world, at this latitude, have glaciers advanced so close to the sea.

The glacier moves at least 1 metre a day, sometimes up to 5 metres...
