Top of the ‘must do’ list is of course the mighty Fox Glacier. There are several ways to experience this marvel of nature; you can walk to the terminal face yourself, or join one of the guided glacier experiences offered by Fox Guiding Company. Heli-hikes land you high on the glacial icefalls, where you are guided through incredible glacial features such as ice caves, crevasses and pinnacles by professional guides.
One of the ultimate experiences in Fox Glacier is from the sky. From a fixed wing aircraft or helicopter, the scenery is incredible. You can choose from a variety of flights, including landing high in the mountains, which are covered by snow all year round. For the ultimate combination of scenery and adrenaline, you can even make a tandem skydive!

And there are several excellent rainforest and alpine walking tracks in the area, ranging in length from half hour to overnight treks.
