Fox Glacier Vacations
The national capital Wellington is located 290 miles (467 kilometers) northeast of Fox Glacier.
From major tourist drawcards to hidden gems slightly off the beaten path, the area around Fox Glacier is crisscrossed with fabulous things to see and do. Bruce Bay, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the east, and Glentanner, 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the north of Fox Glacier are good spots to check out if you have the time.
Head to West Coast New Zealand's history museums and art galleries. These are excellent spots to spend time, especially when the weather is unpleasant.
If you are in the area in the colder months, take advantage of winter pastimes including snow shoeing and cross-country skiing. These are popular in the region. Watersports are a common activity here. Take the opportunity to go surfing or canoeing; this region has some perfect spots.
Those holidaying in West Coast New Zealand or elsewhere in New Zealand on the 6th of February, can join the country-wide Waitangi Day activities and celebrations.
A wise person once said: that it is far better to see something once than to hear about it many times over. With its breathtaking vistas and friendly people, West Coast New Zealand will exceed your expectations.
