As Fox Glacier township is set amongst some of the world’s most beautiful, unspoilt scenery, most `things to do’ are based on the outdoors.
The Department of Conservation (DOC) maintain a number of tracks which offer amazing views and scenery. For more info contact www.doc.govt.nz or phone +64 3 751 0807.
If an adrenaline rush is what you’re after jump out of an airplane with Skydive Fox Glacier.
There are also a number of helicopter companies in town offering scenic flights over the glaciers and surrounding mountains. It is advisable to book ahead as they can be relatively busy when the weather is fine.
The Hobnail Shop in the Fox Glacier Guiding Building offers a wide range of quality souvenirs and clothing. The buying philosophy of the shop is to stock ‘something for everyone’. If you see something you like here why not check out the store’s other branch located in Franz Josef Glacier (30 mins drive North of Fox Glacier) called The Glacier Shop.
The Glacier Shop, like the Hobnail Shop has a wide range of affordable gifts and souvenirs.
