Travel Blogs from Fox Glacier

A long travel day, many beautiful sights

A travel blog entry by australblog

The trip from Queenstown to Fox Glacier was very long, but it gave us a chance to experience the Southern Alps, see the west coast, walk many forest trails, and visit a vineyard. The latter was beautifully situated, and though it was a bit too early to sample organic wines, we did nonetheless. I loved that area-- it was cool, dry, beautiful, and I …

A travel blog entry by gillb1954


Saturday 1st December

Departed at 7.30am for the drive to Fox Glacier. From Queenstown the road (highest tar sealed road in NZ) to Wanaka gave us the most stunning of views.

Franz Josef glacier

... A bit gutted we trudge our way back down and caught the helicopter back down. The pilot hugged the valley edge tightly using it as a guide down through the cloud, bit dodgy when he's gunning it and can't see what's coming up in front!

Late afternoon I suddenly decided we needed to ...

Tekapo and Mount Cook

I then left Amy in the plush Hermatage hotel and went on the 1 1/4 return Kia point track which snakes through the valley with views of Mount cook along the first section. It ends with a view point overlooking the mountain ...

A Freeze Is Coming (Ice, Cool, Freeze)

A travel blog entry by handytravels


... It was enough for us just to have the stillness to ourselves even if only for seconds. When the afternoon arrived, so did the rain, we came to accept that our time in the Alps was over and that when it was too wet to walk, we may as well start our drive to Queenstown. Good decision! When we turned on the car and checked the fuel gauge, we opted not to fill up. Bad decision! Thus began the first ever Diesel dash as for the next three hours we ...

    Fine for a stopover. Clean and comfortable, good breakfast, a bit tired and dated.
