Fox Glacier, a paradox. A top accommodation facility, metres from some of the best cappuccino and food on the West Coast. Yet this remote village is set in the tranquility of Westland National Park and South West World Heritage area; a wonderful relaxing bush environment with one of only three glaciers in the world that descend from crisp, clear snow capped mountains into lush green temperate rainforest.
The township is located just 5 kilometres from the glacier and uniquely, just 6 kilometres from the pounding surf of the Tasman Sea. It is nestled in the rainforest at the foot of precipitous mountains and offers a wide range of alpine and adventure activities.
Fox offers any traveller so many points of interest you’ll want to see them all! We are just an 10 minute drive from the renowned Lake Matheson (“reflection lake”), a mere 5 minute drive to the glacier car park and just a 20 minute drive from rainforest encompassed hot pools. We have Gillespies Beach 20 minutes away which has a great collection of walks including a seal colony, historic gold dredge, lagoon, wild sheep, cycling track and cave.
We are enthusiastic and genuine hosts who hope to make your time in Fox Glacier memorable for all the right reasons.
