Our journey took us across country towards Haast Pass and then meandered along the coast to Fox Glacier. We drove another thirty minutes to Franz Josef where we stayed in a hotel in the rainforest.
Underwhelmed by the local glaciers we took a rainforest walk to a lake reflecting Mount Cook. Our day was not spoilt by the gentle breeze rippling the picturesque image since the sights and sounds of rainforest were exhilarating.
