Fox glacier hiking was brilliant. More than we expected from the fox trot 3 hour hike on the terminal face. A small bit of rain , but it was worth it Being inside the ice cave was something we did not expect. Loved every minute of it. Guide was informative and very helpful. Thank you.

It was a pretty hike but you weren't allowed to go to the actual glacier without a guide. We read you were able to so that's why we picked this over Franz Josef. It was a bit of a let down.

Unless you're a seasoned hiker, I would recommend a tour guide (there are loads of tour groups).- they provide proper footwear etc

Stunning glacier, an absolute NZ must in my opinion

The fact that this glacier exists so close to the ocean is pretty amazing. Visually impressive. The hike to Fox is also very picturesque. It's a bit quieter then Franz and in my opinion the better of the two!
