Visiting Fox or Franz Josef? A visit to the township of Franz Josef would not be complete without viewing Flowing West The Movie. Playing exclusively on a daily basis in the Alpine Adventure Centre, this is the next best thing to riding in a helicopter! Viewers enjoy truly breath-taking New Zealand scenery combined with a thoroughly entertaining and informative glimpse into the world of glaciers. If you’re feeling hungry, then a quick trip ‘over the hill’ into the Fox glacier township will find you outside the Cook Saddle Cafe and Saloon.
