  • Visit Franz Josef and Fox Glacier in New Zealand
    Poutini National Park with Robert Panzer of Tailored Travel we opted for walks that introduced us to the glaciers providing plenty of dramatic photo opportunities The gacial runoff from Franz Josef is a milky white color The path to Franz Josef glacier leads from the parking lot through a temperate rain forest s tree canopy to a dry riverbed Here the way becomes rocky with multiple small streams to cross A rope barrier blocks the path near the glacier s terminal face The accompanying sign urges visitors to stay safely behind the rope although many ignore it Ask Alan The jagged ice at Fox Glacier Approximately 15 miles up the road Fox Glacier offers several short walks We chose the trail from the parking lot that stays above the riverbed Although steeper Alan and I found the Fox Glacier Valley walk to be easier than the one at Franz Josef but with a more rugged feel to it At the trail s end we were within 130 feet of the glacier s jagged piles of ice Alan photographs Fox Glacier With so many hiking glacier walking and heli tour opportunities a visit to New Zealand s glacier country will keep boomer travelers busy for days And don t forget to hike the trails of Lake Matheson while you re in the area For accommodations in New Zealand Glacier Country we chose Franz Josef Country Retreat about five miles outside the village of Franz Josef The luxury boutique bed and breakfast hotel is located on land that s been farmed by Marie Coburn s family for the last 100 years Update November 5 2012 Franz Josef Country Retreat website is no longer live After much searching on Google I could not determine if they are still in business Have you visited
