Fox Glacier country.

A travel blog entry by laurenandryan

Gut gelaunt machten wir mal einen Großeinkauf bevor es dann zum hitchhiken nach Fox Glacier ging. Unsere Laune sank ein wenig (bzw. vor allem meine) als nach 1,5 Stunden immer noch kein Auto stehen blieb, wir hatten aber dann doch Glück und wurden von zwei verheirateten …

A little bit about a big glacier

A travel blog entry by caryn.solomon


I spent a whole day on Fox glacier hiking and doing ice climbing with three other people. We rented gear and headed out. Climbing the glacier in one of the most challenging things I can ever recall doing. It takes massive amounts of moxy to cross a crevasse or make the mental leap of faith in order to be able to cross large holes in the ice. The …

After overnighting in Greymouth we hit the road by 9.30am, as we had a trek booked at 1.30pm and it took about 3/4 hours to get to the Glacier. The drive was as lovely as the day before and the sun still shining. I rang ahead and booked a hostel in Fox Glacier called 'Ivory Towers', as by the time the trek finished it would be 5. …

    in Fox, there are very little choices for accomodation, we found this place a little pricey compared to the hostels in the rest of the country but it was well worth it, for $26 a night we were in a four bed dorm with a balacony. There was a movie room which was awesome and had actaully cinema seats in it, the free spa was amazing, clean and hot! The views arounf the place were fantastic and the facilities were great!
