Fox Glacier is a 3 mile out and back trail located near the city of Fox Glacier that offers scenic views. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking.
This is a half day hike up the Fox Glacier in New Zealand; it is about 25 kilometers away from the Franz Josef Glacier, which is another hiking option. The trail starts off in a really stunning river valley (more impressive than the valley that approaches the Franz Josef glacier) and eventually climbs up along side the glacier. You will see stunning views of the valley from on top of the glacier as well as the surrounding mountains as well as numerous ice features.
