“A little town on the West Coast? I don’t have time to go there. I only have three weeks to travel New Zealand.”
If this is you – rewind.
First of all, three weeks is not enough to visit New Zealand. Second: Franz Josef and the glacier region have it all. There are mountains (really big ones) and glaciers. There is also rainforest, lakes and all of that right at the ocean. When this world was created someone up there probably thought: “let’s spoil this place”.
