One of the best ways to experience the amazing Fox Glacier is on a guided glacier trip. Various tours depart daily from nearby Fox Glacier Guiding headquarters. All the equipment such as supportive hiking footwear is supplied at no extra cost on guided trips.
Flying Fox: Fox Glacier Helihike
Want the thrill of a helicopter ride as well as the chance to experience your own remote section of Fox Glacier?
