A short walk leads to the toe of the magnificent Fox Glacier / Te Moeka o Tuawe Valley

From the carpark follow the well marked trail to the toe of the Fox Glacier. Do not stray from the trail as unstable ice and moraine can be very dangerous.

Looking for a longer adventure? You can hike to the summit of Mt. Fox above Fox Glacier.
