west coast

Nowhere is the Coast's majesty more evident or more accessible than at it's heart - the Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers.   Less than 20kms apart, these two spectacular rivers of ice flow sharply from the Southern Alps towards the sea, terminating in lush subtropical rainforest close to the towns that bear their names.

If the Glaciers provide the initial impetus for an ever-growing number of tourists from around the World to visit this unique region, it's the weatherbeaten beaches, the brooding lakes and wetlands and the pristine forests - all set against the backdrop New Zealand's highest peaks - that keep them coming back.

Whether its a leisurely stroll around Lake Matheson, a heli-hike on the glaciers or a leap out of a plane from 5800 metres, all followed by a long soak in the hot pools, the West Coast has plenty to put a smile on the face of anyone.
