Westland Tai Poutini National Park

Westland Tai Poutini National Park, also known as “Glacier Country” extends from the highest peak of the Southern alps to a wild, remote coastal area. It’s the only place in New Zealand where glaciers come in such a close contact with the ocean. Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers are the main highlights of the park.
