Fox Glacier- Backdoor To Magnificent Glacier Environment
Fox Glacier, just like its another twin, Franz Josef, descends down from the Southern Alps into the rainforests of the West Coast, New Zealand. The Fox Glacier township area is crammed into the forested foothills of the Southern Alps and offers visitors a great opportunity to easily access these inimitable glacier environments; these opportunities are offered in the name of glacier walks, hikes, and flights. Furthermore, these glaciers (Fox and Franz Josef) form part of the “Glacier Country”, which offers a wealth of crazy adventurous activities like glacier rides, tandem skydiving, a quad bike ride, a chopper ride and a beautiful air ride in a sightseeing plane.
Fox Glacier had been named after the former Prime Minister of New Zealand, Sir William Fox. But later following the passage of the Ngai Tahu Claims Settlement act, 1998, the original name of the glacier was revised to Fox Glacier/ Te Moeka o Tuawe.
