Open, friendly, pure - Welcome to Fox Glacier, NZ
Welcome to Fox Glacier, located in the heart of South Westland on the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island.
Here you will discover a wonderland of pure, natural features waiting to be explored all year long. Numerous outdoor adventure activities are on offer…
Walk, helihike or ice climb to explore the spectacular ice formations of Fox Glacier; the longest and less crowded of the West Coast glaciers. Take a scenic flight over undulating glacier seracs and awe inspiring mountains. Visit Lake Matheson and take in the views of NZ’s highest peaks; Aoraki / Mt Cook and Mt Tasman reflected in the lake’s dark waters.
If an adrenaline rush is what you are after, be sure to book NZ’s most scenic skydive. Alternatively if you would prefer a more relaxed holiday visit the gift shops which stock NZ crafts, take a stroll through the West Coast rainforest to visit glow worms or cosy up to an open fire at one of the cafes. The township offers a relaxed and intimate atmosphere and ‘local Fox Glacerians’ enjoy extending a warm, friendly welcome to visitors from all over the world.
