You know the food at our on-site café must be good when there are as many locals as visitors dining – it’s certainly a popular Fox Glacier dining and coffee spot.

A drive to Peak Viewpoint, 9 kms from Fox Glacier village heading towards the coast can provide panoramic views of the Fox Glacier/ Te Moeka o Tuawe neve and the Southern Alps. There is a plane table that directs your line of sight and on a clear day you can pick out individual peaks including Mt Cook/Aoraki and Mt Tasman.

It is International Mountain Day today. Did you know that Mountains cover 22 percent of the earth's land service?
We certainly appreciate the beautiful mountains that provide us with the amazing Fox Glacier and such an amazing landscape to admire and play in

It's hard to imagine but during the last ice age, the Fox Glacier reached beyond the present day coastline!

Welcome SUMMER! December 1st is the first official day of summer in New Zealand. It's time to dust off the barbe and dig out the jandals from the back of the wardrobe.

Woah, that's a deep crevasse. Let's go in. Ice climbing!! 😎...... #foxglaciernz #foxglacier #foxglcierguidingnz #foxguidesnz #iceclimbing #nz

Fox Glacier moves fast! The unique combination of climate and shape means that Fox (and Franz Josef) Glaciers move at approximately 10 times the speed of other valley glaciers around the world. At Fox Glacier this is due to the funnel -like shape of the glacial valley and the huge neve, the snow accumulation area, at the top of the glacier. Fox Glacier's neve is 25 square kms, bigger than Christchurch city!

Thanks Dianne for sharing this stunning shot you captured while on your Chancellor Dome overnight trip with us recently. Pretty awesome it was aired on the News last week!!

Our Chancellor Dome Heli-Trek has to be one of New Zealand’s finest days in the mountains! Dependent of snow conditions this trip is available until the end of May. Of special interest to botanists, December and January are the best months for alpine flowers. #foxglacierguidingnz #foxglacier #westcoastnz
