Fox Glacier Travel Planning

Facts about Fox Glacier with location information

 

The Fox Glacier township offers a more intimate “village” experience than its bigger neighbour, Franz Josef. Tucked into the rainforest-clad foothills of the Southern Alps, the town provides a range of quality accommodation, hotels, cafes, a general store and service station for motoring needs.

 

 

Visitors are increasingly booking activities on both glaciers during their visit to Glacier Country. Local companies provide access to the Fox Glacier with guided walks, heli-hikes and scenic flights (with or without snow landings). Fox Glacier is internationally renowned for Lake Matheson’s stunning reflections of Aorangi/Mount Cook and Mount Tasman.

Lake Matheson is located 6km west of the township. Further down the valley, driving through rimu rainforests, is the site of the old gold mining settlement of Gillespie’s Beach on the shores of the Tasman Sea. On clear days the Southern Alps are visible from the beach.

 

Bruce Bay – Magnificent rimu forests surround this sandy picturesque bay with the Southern Alps as a backdrop. Situated 30 minutes south of Fox Glacier, Bruce Bay has many historical features. The legendary Polynesian explorer Maui was reportedly the first to land here.
