New Zealand – South Island – Christchurch – Mt Cook - Queenstown – Arrowtown – Wanaka – Fox Glacier - Blenheim
From Wanaka, you can opt to do some ice-rock climbing at Franz Josef or further at Fox Glacier. My suggestion would be to do the climbing at Franz Josef then drive for an hour or so and have a good rest at Fox Glacier.

Franz Josef is a rather small town. If you decide not to do any ice-rock climbing there are a few interesting trails to follow. And after you are tired from all the adventuring, do visit the Glacier Hot Pools for some needed relaxation.
An hour drive away, you will definitely hit Fox Glacier (another small town surrounded by icy mountains). A good place to stay is the Mt Cook View Motel.
