The Fox glacier offers a different set of glacier experiences than the Franz Josef glacier, and visitors are increasingly booking activities on both glaciers during their visit to Glacier Country. Local companies provide access to the Fox Glacier by way of guided walks, heli-hikes, and scenic flights with or without snow landings.
Fox Glacier is also internationally renowned for Lake Matheson’s stunning reflections of Aorangi/Mount Cook and Mount Tasman. The lake is located 6 kilometres west of the township. Further down the valley, driving through rimu rainforests, brings you to the site of the old gold mining settlement of Gillespies Beach on the shores of the Tasman Sea.
