Don't miss it. Very nice place. Those who cannot go Mount Everest, they should have option

Bit of an adventurer? Your other half won't be expecting you to pop the question on a hiking trip around outstandingly stunning Franz Josef Glacier in New Zealand. But the dramatic backdrop of this glistening scenery clashing with the too-blue sky will make for a keepsake photo of the moment unlike any other. And the shimmering ice will complement perfectly the rock on her finger.

Walking on Franz Josef glacier is a well established activity in the South Island. You can choose from the different cources, and choose between halfday and fullday. Helicopter ride might be necessary (the condition of glacier changes quickly, so the requirement changes as well).

Being able to hike on a glacier was amazing. I highly recommend it to anyone. The weather is quite unpredictable here so give yourself an extra day or two to make sure to get your hike in!
