Fox Glacier

From Abel Tasman we made our way south towards Fox Glacier, which is a town just past Franz Josef. It literally is just a small tourist town with a population of about 300 and more hotels than you could shake a stick at. Still, as has become the norm here, the scenery was just stunning, with the endless, lakes, trees and snow capped mountains. We took the opportunity here to do the coolest thing we’ve done all trip – a helicopter ride!. Admittedly, the view from the front of the helicopter was a bit scary at first, but once we got used to it it really was amazing. We got really cool views of Fox Glacier and Franz Josef from the air and then landed atop a snow capped Mt Cook. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience 🙂
