Fox Glacier hotels
As one of the rare glaciers that descends into a rainforest, Fox Glacier, New Zealand—which is both a glacier and town—offers a unique opportunity to scale ice mountains, fly around peaks and swim in the ocean, all before nesting down in comfortable Fox Glacier hotels. Quieter and smaller than its twin, Franz Josef, the sleepy yet friendly town relies on farming when visitors slow, but the cafes, restaurants, bars and outdoorsy diversions continually attract outsiders in the thousands on a daily basis. Having said that, finding plentiful Fox Glacier accommodation to suit any taste, regardless of the time of year, is a cinch!
Families and those with a sense of whimsy should start their holiday by exploring the glow-worm caves. After admiring the local insect fauna, join a guided tour of the Fox Glacier face. Stay on track, the barriers are there for your safety. If the ice seems unstable, take a plane or helicopter to the peak for a bird’s eye view, or throw on a swimsuit and paddle around Lake Matheson. Its beauty is often memorialized in pictures and on a clear day, it reflects Mt. Cook.
If the ocean’s siren song gets to you, walk along historic Gillespie Beach before lunch at one of many charming eateries nearby. Stress less about the costs of travel with HotelClub’s member benefits and exclusive savings on Fox Glacier accommodation.
Fly internationally into Queenstown Airport or fly into the regional Hokitika Airport, and take a bus into Fox Glacier. Rental cars are also available.
