Our West Coast wilderness awaits you

Fox Glacier town is at the heart of South Westland’s Te Wāhipounamu UNESCO World Heritage Area – it’s stunning! Fox Glacier is a cool little alpine village,  with huge mountain views, soaring peaks, rainforest foothills, beautiful rivers and picturesque lakes.   

All set against the backdrop of the mighty Fox Glacier. This is one of the only places in the world a glacier terminates in a temperate rainforest.

Getting up on Fox Glacier is unforgettable, but there’s so much more to explore here too.

Enjoy this amazing country on horseback, take in the incredible vistas, wind along the bush-clad Fox River or grab an e-bike and cycle through this remote wilderness on well-formed tracks. The air is different here, so fresh and clean. You’ll feel in touch with nature and a million miles from everyday life. These are authentic kiwi experiences.

Arrive, stay and play in Fox Glacier.  We look forward to sharing it with you

It was our first time riding horses and we had really friendly ones (Willy and Ace), it was a lovely introduction, we loved it! Although it was a cloudy day we still enjoyed the landscape, was nice riding on grass and in the riverbed. Our guide, Angela was very nice and had lots of information for us about the horses and about activities around the South Island. We would recommend the experience!
Lovely Afternoon

Last minute decision to book our family in for a ride. Chloe was able to to fit us in with just an hour's notice - very much appreciated! The horses were a great fit for our inexperience and the kids (14,12,9) came away with massive smiles and asking to do it all again! Renae was our very friendly guide and was great with the kids. Short 1hr stroll was great timing for us.

I have heard so much about the horse tracking in Fox Glacier and although I am not the biggest horse fan I was keen to give it a go! From the moment I drove in I was sold with the well set up yard, very docile horses and how welcoming Chloe and Ang were. They kindly answered all my questions as they prepared the horses for the ride and then we were off! The trek was amazing, cruising along bush tracks, then out into the open by the incredible Cook River and right behind us were the stunning snow capped mountains, amazing scenery!! My horse was perfect, not a thing went wrong and I felt very safe and comfortable. I would highly recommend this trek to others who are keen to do something a little different and the team at Experience Fox Glacier are wonderful to work with! Thank you again!!!
