10 reviews of Franz Josef Glacier

Carlos Olmo

Variety of climates

The most comprehensive information is at 'http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/franz_josef_glacier.' The glacier known as Franz Josef (or Ka Roimata or Hinehukatere) is 12 kilometres long, less than 300 meters above sea level and only 19 kilometres from the Tasman Sea.
