See spectacular views of Fox Glacier up close with this Fox Glacier Terminal Face Walk!
This walk is perfect if you are short on time and prefer to leave the glacier untouched by your footprints. It does not go onto the ice but winds its way up the Fox Valley to a viewpoint where you can see the ever-changing face of Fox Glacier. Your guide will bring the walk alive with their amazing knowledge of the terrain. At the "front" of the glacier, known as its Terminal Face, the Fox River emerges from the ice. You might witness an ice collapse or large ice boulders being pushed down the Fox River by the current. You'll spend up to two hours walking over valley terrain that can be challenging in some places.
Come and experience the mighty Te Moeka o Tuawe/Fox Glacier with us today!
