Franz Josef Glacier

After Greymouth we finally reached the Southern Alps. We stayed two nights at Franz Josef Glacier village and did some hiking around. As all glacier walking tours were fully booked at Franz Josef, we headed to Fox Glacier, which was situated near by. Walking on the glacier was nice and it was great to see snow first time this winter (although it was summer in NZ). It was amazing to hear how long it does take for the ice to come down from the mountains to the point where it starts to melt and converts into small creeks that eventually form rivers. 100 years!
