Fox Glacier is famous throughout the world for its ready access to its namesake glacier, a massive 13 kilometre icy tongue descending from the Southern Alps to almost sea level.
But the attractions don’t stop there. Other must dos include visits to Lake Matheson, renown for its picture perfect reflections of the neighbouring Aoraki/Mt Cook and Mt Tasman (New Zealand’s two highest peaks), the nearby Kotuku (White Heron) sanctuary and the rugged Gillespies Beach plus all the walking, hiking, fishing and hunting that abounds in this unspoilt region.
For comfort and a dose of that famous West Coast hospitality there is no better accommodation than the Heartland Hotel Glacier Country or its sister the Heartland Hotel Fox Glacier.
