Description

The Fox Glacier (Te Moeka o Tuawe in Māori) is a 12 km long glacier located in Westland National Park on the West Coast of New Zealand's South Island (Te Wai Pounamu). It was named in 1872 after a visit by the then Prime Minister of New Zealand, Sir William Fox

Fed by four alpine glaciers, Fox Glacier falls 2,600m on its 13km journey from the Southern Alps down to the coast, with it having the distinction of being one of the few glaciers to end among lush rainforest only 300 metres above sea level. Although retreating throughout most of the last 100 years, it has been advancing since 1985 at an average of about a meter a week.
