Our group only made it halw-way as the heavy rain ended our try to finish the hike. Surrounding nature and hills are really beautifull.

Loved the walk up to the glaciers closest viewing point. Lucky to bump in to a German guy with an exceptional camera and tripod so we got to see the glacier close up.

We took a helicopter to the middle of the glacier and hiked with a guide. So awesome. My husband twisted his ankle and still thought it was worth the pain.

It's about ~1.5 hour (depending on how many photos you take) round trip walk from the parking lot to the base of the glacier. Check out photos on instagram: @the_world_is_my_oyster2019

We drove through the main township of Fox Glacier towards the glacier access road, where there is a huge car park. We had a camper van and there was ample parking in the car park.There was some toilets at the end of the car park, they were clean and maintained. There are lots of different walks around the area with choice of distances clearly marked. The walk to the main glacier was well maintained considering how many people walk on these tracks on a daily basis. We walked for about 15/20 mins and took photos on the way. We were greeted by the most wonderful sight that im sure we will never see again as the glacier is slowly retracting. But to see such an untamed natural wonder was a memory to cherish. The information stated that due to a lot of rainwater recently the lookout point had been pulled back a bit, due to the water making the paths a little unstable. Certainly well worth going
