I am sending my age 71 and 72 parents to NZ in a few weeks. Which glacier is the best to see? They would not be interested in helicopter and don't need to hike on the glaciers. Can you still walk out to see the glacier face and how long and how easy is the walk? Also which township nicest to stay in for 1 night (probably the previous night in Hokitika and the next night in Wanaka)?
Thanks for opinions.
