Most ‘things to do’ are based around the outdoors.
A ‘must do’ at Fox Glacier is a visit to Lake Matheson, a five minute drive west of the township. This famous reflective lake is a photographers dream, as its crystal waters create a mirror image of New Zealand’s highest peaks, Aoraki (Mt Cook) and Mt Tasman. The track encircles the lake, through native rainforest, and it takes approximately one hour to walk the entire lake circuit. A further 20 minutes drive on from Lake Matheson brings you to the historic gold mining settlement of Gillespies Beach. There are several walks to enjoy here, the most popular being a four hour return trip to a colony of fur seals.
