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.
The ultimate glacial experience - this flight tour covers it all! Glacial icefalls, crevasses and neves, views from ocean to Alps – you get to see both glaciers and NZ’s highest peak. Cross the spine of the Southern Alps and circle the top of magnificent Aoraki/Mount Cook. Topped off with a spectacular snow landing, this is the best helicopter experience on the West Coast!
