Marvel at the remarkable Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers on the west coast and the Tasman Glacier within Aoraki Mount Cook National Park; the largest glacier in New Zealand. Fly up the spine of the South Island, enjoying panoramic views of Lake Wanaka and Lake Hawea on one side and Lake Pukaki, arguably New Zealand’s most beautiful lake, on the other.
