      The only reason people go to Fox Glacier is the overpowerig presence of Mount Cook, Mount Tasman, Fox Glacier, Franz Josef Glacier and all the accompanying stuff of mountains and snow.

      Today, we made another go at Lake Matheson and wanted to do the Fox Glacier walk after that but, once again, the weather is not cooperating ... so we are waiting for a potential clearing before we set out for Fox.

      Cheers and enjoy yourself it is later than you think.

Last time we were here we were sharing the views with dozens of others, the advantage of the weather was just one other couple until another solitary person walked up, and that was it. Drove round to Fox glacier and walked to the lookout but could not see the face as that path closed. ...

      ... hacking steps into the ice with his pick axe. He guided us through a series of crevasses & caves some of which were very narrow, and we loved every second of it. The ice was around 80-100metres deep where we were standing and of course you had to be conscious of where you were stepping. It all seemed to be over very quickly but at least we had another treat at the end of it; our helicopter ride back to Franz Josef town. We loved every second of it and ...

We had dinner at the Panorama Restaurant here at the hotel which has floor to ceiling windows and is classed as fine dining.
