This tour is one not to be missed!  Check in is at 1.15pm at our office at Scott Base information Centre in Franz Josef (for payment and some form-filling in.)  We then depart from our office base for Fox Glacier (30 min drive) at 1.30pm daily in our 10 seater van.   Free pick-ups & drop-offs available from your accommodation at Fox Glacier (at 2:00pm -  payment & form entering can be made in the van if needed.) 
Our Fox Glacier Valley Eco Tour is equally impressive as the Franz Josef Glacier, and a must see while in Glacier Country NZ.  Both valley's are quite diversive  - the Fox Glacier valley is a narrow with thousands of striations scarring the vertical rock faces.  Up close and personal in safety with your guide, they will lead you through the riverbed track, walking over rocks and riverbed, and on and off the main track. We take you off the beaten path from the public track on this 2.5 hour easy tour.*  You will have a break at the end of the track for some complimentary afternoon tea (provided by us).   On our small-group personalised and informative tours, your experienced guide will provide information on glaciology, geology, NZ flora and fauna, history of the area, and many other useful facts.  We provide wet weather gear, umbrellas & walking poles.  The tour will finish back at our office in Franz Josef Glacier, providing drop-offs to accommodation or other activities on the way.
*Subject to group size, weather conditions & client ability.  Please note we do not walk onto the Glacier or Ice itself, this requires helicopter access only.
