Franz Josef or Fox Glacier or both?

Jump to last reply

We are travelling to NZ in late Sept and I would like to experience walking on a glacier. Ive been told the photo opportunities are stunning. The glaciers (and Lake Matheson) seem to be close to each other. Is this correct?
Are the glacier experiences similar or are both worth visiting? Are there any tour companies that are better than others, that you'd recommend?
Is Lake Matheson as beautiful as it looks in the brochure? :-)
How long would you spend in this area and where would you stay?
Cheers
Cathy
