What people are saying:

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.
