Things to do

To fully experience Glacier Country, you need to immerse yourself in the landscape. It is not until you make footprints on a high alpine snow field, journey deep into the towering rainforests, explore the blue ice caves of the glaciers, tackle a trout on a beautiful lake, jetboat up a glacial river, or contemplate the mountain reflections in Lake Matheson that you will truly encounter our wilderness.

Choose from Glacier Country adventures, including guided glacier walks, kayaking, kiwi encounters, quad biking, off-road buggies, tandem skydiving and white-water rafting. There is also a range of scenic flights (helicopter or fixed wing, with or without snow landings), horse treks, hot pools, boat trips, kayaking and more.  The diverse range of activities in and around Fox Glacier & Franz Josef is available all year round.

Here you will find details of tourism operators in Okarito, Whataroa, Fox Glacier and Franz Josef who will ensure that  you  experience the very best of Glacier Country.
