G is for glacier . . . or glacial ice.
- A glacier is a river of ice that is slowly moving downhill.
- Fox and Franz Josef are the two best known glaciers in New Zealand, and are often considered to be the most accessible glaciers in the world. They each travel through subtropical rainforest, resting almost at sea level.
- There are actually 18 small glaciers on the North Island, and over 3,000 glaciers on the South Island. Only 6 of these cover more than 10 hectares.
If you want to see more of New Zealand, don’t miss Choose A Way Auckland, which will publish on April 11. It is currently available at a special pre-order price of only $1.99 from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or Gum.
