Hi,may I know if I choose fox glacier heli hike
Then I stay at lake tekapo so do I need to drive myself to fox glacier?


Heya, All hikes depart from Fox Glacier Guide base, situated on the main road of Fox Glacier. So you will need to make your own way there.

I have never hiked before, can you advise if the heli hike is suitable for a beginner?


No previous hiking experience is necessary to partake in the Fox Glacier heli hike however you do need to have a minimum level of fitness. You will be on the ice hiking for around 3 hours (with plenty of stops) and there is some undulation so you should be comfortable walking for this amount of time on some uneven surfaces.

Hi, one more question I found there is other walks available from this website but it's no in your website, could you confirm if it's available?

Fox Trot (half day walk) - allow 4 hours (1 hr ice time)
Nimble Fox (all day walk) - allow 7 hours (4 hrs ice time)



Hi Irene. There was an ice slip a month or so ago at Fox Glacier which has meant the Fox Trot and Nimble Fox walks are not operating until conditions change. There is a new walk called the Quick Fox which is a shortened version of the Fox Trot half day walk that is operating as well as the Heli Hikes.

I was more worried about clothing. If we are looking at going on the half day walk, what clothes are recommended?



Hi Luisa, it is recommended that you bring 3 - 4 layers of warm upper body clothing. Jeans are not recommended on wet days as they become very cold and uncomfortable to wear. You will be provided with sturdy leather boots for walking on the day. It is also recommended that you bring sunglasses and sun protection, a day pack with drink and snacks, raincoat (this can be supplied if you don't have your own) and during the winter months you will need a warm hat and gloves too.
