A moderate walk through luscious rainforest to see a stunning view of Fox Glacier without the crowds.

Short (one hour return) walk to a nice spot to view the glacier. Most parts of the glacier are covered in dark gravel and sand. Still some ice can be seen. Enjoy it before it is gone.

Nice campsite with good people. One of the owners was not very nice. The kitchen was not really tidy everyday.

If you are a glacier lover or if you have never seen ice, this is for you but for ice and snow accustomed europeans, the glacier, at least in summer, feels dirty and less impressive than expected. The walk there is dusty and somewhat boring.

We visited Fox Glacier in the summer and were not (ignorantly so) expecting to see the glacier covered in rubble. The walk was not very clear (many turned around), and the end was a very steep walk up a hill. You were rewarded with a clear view of the glacier though.

A great walk through bush, steep in places, river crossings, be careful as not crossable after heavy rain. View at the end, well worth it - beautiful!

From the two view points Fox Glacier is worth the walk even if you don't walk on it. Very impressive.

A great view of the glacier and the walk is through beautiful rainforest. Uphill almost the whole way though so it is a commitment.
