Fox Glacier

Fox Glacier was named after Sir William Fox, New Zealand’s Prime Minister from 1869 to 1872. Fox Glacier describes both the glacier and the nearby village. Like its twin, Franz Josef, the glacier descends from the Southern Alps down into temperate rainforest just 300 metres above sea level. An icy feast for the eyes!

To witness this awesome sight just head toward Lake Matheson on Cook Flat Road for some magnificent views. You can arrange an ice-hiking adventure or booking a scenic flight - your choice and weather permitting. Near to Fox Glacier you will find the beautiful Lake Matheson, one of the most photographed lakes in New Zealand. On a clear day it reflects Mount Cook in it's pristine waters.
