Did you know that glaciers abound in New Zealand? Most people don’t know, but New Zealand has 21 large, named glaciers. However, in total, New Zealand has over 3,000 glaciers, most of which are in the Southern Alps of the southern island.
Within these Southern Alps, two glaciers even have towns named after them: Franz Josef Glacier and Fox Glacier. These two glaciers are two of the most easily accessible glaciers in the world and many travel the world just to see them.
