This is a half day hike up the Fox Glacier in New Zealand; which is about 25 kilometers away from another, similar hiking option - the Franz Josef Glacier. 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.

Pretty disappointing compared to other glacier hikes we've done elsewhere.
