Due to bad weather conditions, our quick fox guided trip was cancelled. The company obviously couldn't do anything about this, but it is a long drive from Queenstown so I recommend you check in on the morning before you leave to ensure tours are operating. Also check the roads as we were stopped for about 25 minutes at Diana Falls due to a rock fall. Fox guiding offered a hike to the terminal face instead, and whilst this was fine we did wonder why we had paid when we could have walked the track for free. Our guide did fill us in with details about the recession and progress of the glacier etc. Fox guiding did provide wet weather gear and it was great to have this as it was very wet and having done other walks in the rain we knew it can take a few days to dry out coats and shoes etc. the public track goes to the top of a hill and apparently you could look down on the glacier from there. Our guide didn't take us up to that part as the company felt it was too unsafe owing to the possibility of rock falls (there were a lot of other people walking on that part of the track). So we were disappointed we couldn't do this part. We did get to go off track and got close to the river in front of the terminal face. We felt that $225 for a family of 5 was not great value for this hike.
