Outside polar regions, New Zealand has the highest percentage of glaciers in the world. You don’t need to be a mountain climber to enjoy simply travelling and exploring the Fox and Franz Glaciers. There are few places in the world that offer comparable views; you are surrounded by enormous glaciers while watching the sun set into the Tasman Sea.  Trekking from hut to hut or simply doing day trips, you will be amazed.

If you are interested in learning some new skills this is a great trip to cover some basics of glacier travel such as:

  • Planning and preparation
  • Glacier travel and crevasse rescue
  • Fundamental mountaineering techniques such as use of ice axe and crampons
  • Mountain navigation
  • Snow caving and emergency shelters
