Visiting the Glaciers should be the first activity on your list. A relatively easy walk will get you up close to the terminal face of both Glaciers. For the more adventurous, guided hiking / walking on the Glaciers is well worth considering. Fox Glacier Guiding will guide you onto the ice via a secret track through bush regenerating from previous glacial advances & share with you their knowledge of the geology of the area, whilst you walk on the glacier viewing its stunning ice features. Franz Josef Glacier Guides will take you deep in the heart of the glacier where you can squeeze through tight blue crevasses, slide through ice caves or even ‘franz shuffle’ down near vertical walls of ice. Other attractions include the ''Flowing West'' movie at Franz Josef and the Lake Matheson walkway a short drive towards the coast from Fox Glacier.
