Franz Josef Glacier

On our third day staying in Franz Josef, the rain stopped, we realised our motel actually has a view of the Glacier (rain was too heavy to see it before), and best of all we walked up the Glacier.  We are so pleased that we waited for the rain to stop before going up the Glacier as the rain cleaned the ice and also obviously a fine day is much more pleasant to walk around in.

We were totally in awe of the beauty of the amazing Glacier, the walk up there was well worth it.  The pristine white and blue ice formations really were amazing and we were able to walk through a few narrow crevasses.  We walked quite high up on the Glacier, up into the really blue ice so it was really awesome.  We took heaps of cool photos, to see them click here.
