Activity description

Fox Glacier is located in the Westland Tai Poutini National Park and takes its name from Sir William Fox, who visited the Glacier as Prime Minister of New Zealand in 1872.

It is one of the few glaciers in the world which exists in such close proximity to both an ocean and a rainforest. The unique setting of Fox Glacier and speed of the ice-flow (up to 3 metres per day in places) make for some of the most dynamic ice formations of any glacier.

Twice the ice! Explore the glacial icefalls of not one but two glaciers - Fox Glacier and Franz Josef Glacier. Discover up close their neves and unusual ice formations. Landing on the snowfields is a highlight and will make for superb photos, snowballs, and memories.

The experience takes 30 min. which includes a 10-min. snow landing.
