GLACIER HIKE

Janice, Kelsey, Tyler, Kris and Greg took a guided hike on Fox Glacier. The hike took them over crevasses, up and down ice stairs and into caves. Kelsey and Kris returned to the Glacier the next day for an all-day course on ice climbing. The Fox Glacier is 14 km long, descending from snowfields at an altitude of 2750 metres to its terminal face at 245 m.

Fox Glacier and nearby Franz Josef Glacier are unique in descending to such low altitudes in temperate climates
