I'm Marios, delivering the best of Aotearoa's nature walks to your device.

I've personally walked hundreds of New Zealand's tracks and spent months in libraries uncovering interesting information on New Zealand/Aotearoa. And you'll find a slice of that research on this page - enjoy!



800 m return | 20 minutes return

Put a sepia filter on the glacier view frames by foliage and you could have a shot from the bygone days of early glacier tourism.


From Fox township, cross the Fox River and immediately turn left into Glacier View Road. continue 3 km to the parking area, toilet and road end.

This road is unsuitable for campers (3.2m headroom barrier at road entrance).


This wheelchair friendly track descends gently to a view of the glacier, framed by the silhouettes of forest vegetation.
