FOCUS ON SOUTH WESTLAND
Visit Fox Glacier
Tucked into the forested foothills of the Southern Alps, the township of Fox Glacier is a popular stopover on the drive between Punakaiki and Wanaka.
Fox Glacier describes both the glacier and the nearby village. Like its twin, Franz Josef, the glacier descends from the Southern Alps down into temperate rainforest just 300 metres above sea level.
To see the glacier, you can walk to the terminal face, arrange an ice-hiking adventure or book a sightseeing flight.
There are glow worm caves just a short walk from the town centre, which offers a good choice of cafes and restaurants.
A welcome awaits
Fox Glacier Mountain View is a modern home on 8 acres of farmland surrounded by bushclad hills. There are spectacular views of Mt Cook and Mt Tasman.
The bedrooms are super king size and have either ensuite or private bathrooms.
