pxy0705Franz Josef Glacier is a famous glacier national park on the west coast of New Zealand's South Island. There are hundreds of kilometers of snow-capped mountains here, and the snow does not melt all the year round, for tens of thousands of years. The ecological environment of the entire glacier is very good. The stream flowing down from the melting glacier is clear and sweet. The scenery along the way is very beautiful. It is definitely a good place for hiking.

denis天涯任我行Another sight in Hokitika is the glowwormdell, a free glowworm cave, located just across the road from the shiningstarbeachfrontaccommodation on the coast. There are signs at the entrance and free parking. Walk along the trail on the left for 2-3 minutes. It was raining when I went there. It was slippery and I couldn’t see my fingers. This is the first time I came here. I don’t know the terrain very much. You need to be very careful. The flashlight inside is quite unscrupulous and immoral, and the flashlight cannot be used to take pictures. There are iron wires on both sides of the road, and the vertical woods are covered with glowworms. The stars are dotted with stars, as if they are in the Milky Way. Why is the New Zealand firefly called glowworm and not firefly, because it is a kind of worm that can't fly. It clings to moist woods and caves. It spits out sticky filaments like nets, attracting flying insects with its own light. This place is recommended to go after 9 o'clock in the evening, the darker the more beautiful.
d36***08If you don’t take a photo with the driftwood decoration "HOKITIKA", you have never been to Hokitika or the west coast of the South Island. In the Hokitika travel brochure compiled and distributed by Tourism New Zealand, the homepage picture is a photo of the sunset accompanied by "HOKIDIKA".
Walk west from the town’s bell tower for 3 minutes and pass through a small gate. Hokitika Beach is right in front of you. The whistling sea breeze and the waves are beating against the black rocky beach.
The driftwood decoration and the stone green sofa not far from the side are the most eye-catching objects on the beach. For a long time, tourists will consciously line up to check in.
The local residents' preference for the driftwood "HOKIDIKA" is almost obsessive. Whenever a strong wind destroys part or all of the decoration, within 24 hours, they must be refurbished as new with the dead branches of driftwood available everywhere on the beach.
广州丁满Two of the three major glaciers in the South Island of New Zealand are located on the west coast, namely Fox Glacier and Franz Josef Glacier. It's not easy to come here by land. Over the mountains and ridges, the road seems to have entered a prehistoric era. It also proves from another angle that it is not affected by humans too much, and it is primitive enough. There are usually helicopter sightseeing, canyon hiking, and ice climbing experience to visit the glacier. I participated in the first two of Fox Glacier. Due to the impact of global warming, the lower edge of the glacier has been receding into the mountains. There are only a large amount of gravel cut by the glacier in the canyon. It is scary to see, but it is still beautiful to overlook from the helicopter and the glacier landing. Hope Mankind can implement emissions reductions as soon as possible and protect our shared nature.

On the South Island of New Zealand there is a beautiful place called Fox glacier. I took a helicopter ride to the top of a glacier and then hiked around for a couple hours. it was such an amazing experience
We took a helicopter up the mountain - an awesome experience by itself! The views were spectacular even if the sun kept blinding us a little bit. Make sure to wear warm clothes if you plan on going up here.
Sometimes I couldn't help but encounter the low tide of RP during the trip. I originally planned to walk on the Fox Glacier. I didn't think it was already next to the helicopter, but it was cancelled because of the sudden change of weather. Decisively drove to the franze glacier immediately, and I was disappointed to try to walk for about an afternoon. The result of the
and the glaciers missed was that I walked four rounds away from the Fox Glacier at dusk and early morning. The lake is as flat as a mirror, reflecting the reflection of the highest peak of Mount Cook, beautiful and quiet, which is somewhat regrettable for me to make up.
Fanatic friends should wait for the sunset at lake matheson, and the reflection of the golden snow peak is even more amazing. Well, I saw this scene, but the camera is not in the hand, when the RP value is low on the trip, it is such a disappointment.
On the third day, after the ice, I plan to leave fox
at the second stop. I am going to the second station, Queenstown

New Zealand | Unexpectedly into the rainforest version of Lake Matheson
Lake Matheson has three viewpoints, clockwise: Jetty Point (20 minutes) - View of View (45 minutes) - Reflection island (1 hour)
It takes an hour and a half to walk around Lake Matheson, which is actually the right time. If you have a physical problem or a time problem, you can choose to go to the Reflection Island directly counterclockwise. After all, this is the climax of the three viewpoints.
Route: There will be a winding road in the entrance to Matheson Caf for 10 minutes, with Lake Matheson on the side, Car Parking on the side, and Car Parking.
My God, am I going wrong? ! The moss covered with trees is so cute that it will explode, forgive me for the love of moss. So I took a one-and-a-half-hour road for two and a half hours. I experienced two heavy rains in the middle. If I said that I was dizzy, no one believed it!
The best New Zealand lamb chops
Matheson Cafe in Lake Matheson is the crowning touch of Lake Matheson. It is ranked first in the local restaurant on the cat eagle, and is also recommended by the Motel owner. Before the glacier walked, we made an appointment for the evening seat. After the end of Lake Matheson, we welcomed the first restaurant dinner in New Zealand.
The caf surrounded by green plants, coming out of the trail, saw the warm little orange light calling us to come to eat. The wall facing the snow-capped caf is floor-to-ceiling glass. During the day, guests can sit outside the window and enjoy coffee desserts in the snow-covered rice fields. Sitting in the warm indoors in the evening, you can see the snow-capped peaks of the setting sun. We ordered two steaks, one lamb chops. The meat quality and cooking method is the best in this trip. The beef tender is completely free of coarse and old fibers. Although it is very thick, the taste is perfect from the inside out.
If you have the opportunity to arrange coffee at Lake Matheson, it is highly recommended for dinner here. The main dishes made with beef and mutton are the most famous.
Seeing a beautiful sunset in Hokitika, New Zealand, jumping from the height of 10,000 feet in Queenstown, hiking 10 km in Mount Cook, making a vow under the snowy mountains, picnicking at Lake Wanaka, in Tikpo The lake held hands to see the starry sky and the Milky Way, the first attempt to fly in Wanaka and the lobster in Kaikoura. . . . 1 car, 11 days, more than 2,800 kilometers, galloping in the dream of New Zealand, experienced an unprecedented journey!
New Zealand is one of the most beautiful countries in the southern hemisphere, consisting of two islands, the South Island and the North Island, and the South Island is close to Antarctica (so if you are lucky enough to see the South Pole, you will see the most beautiful in Tekapu The starry sky and the rare Antarctic light), the North Island and Fiji are a country that is very suitable for self-driving travel. The distance between the various attractions is not close, but the scenery is infinite.
This is our main destination for self-driving New Zealand South Island. The South Island is famous for its natural landscapes. Lakes, snow mountains, glaciers, jungles and oceans are all available. Around the South Island, I traveled around the South Island, galloping in the blue sky and white clouds, like a fairy tale world, as beautiful as a dream, but it is still at your fingertips.
