Eco-adventure extraordinaire

Embark on a unique journey through the wilderness with this adventure. Starting in the charming Fox Glacier Village, you'll mount your E-bikes and with an experienced guide begin your journey through the ancient podocarp rainforest. As you ascend, you'll marvel at the effortless power of the E-bike, which makes light work of any hill. Midway, you’ll trade your E-bike for leather boots, and continue your ascent on foot through the Mills Creek track, passing Cone Rock and New Zealand's largest active landslip. Your guide will coach you on the use of E-bike equipment and ensure you're kitted out with walking boots and raincoats for the hike.

Hike through wilderness, meet a glacier

Reaching the climax of the hike, you'll find yourself at a viewpoint offering the closest views of the terminal face of the Fox Glacier. As you absorb this breathtaking sight, your guide will share intriguing snippets about the glacier – like its astonishing speed, advancing at about a meter a week. After soaking in the views, you’ll retrace your steps, hop back on your E-bikes, and coast back to the village, ending your journey on a high note of awe and satisfaction.
