Day

Sample Itinerary (Fox Glacier)

 

1

Meet your guide in Wanaka, check gear, drive to Fox Glacier Township and fly into the mountains to Pioneer Hut up on the mighty Fox Glacier. Introduction to ice axe and crampons in the afternoon.

 

2

Roped up for safe glacier travel, walk to Pioneer Pass; a high pass right on the Main Divide of the Southern Alps. Superb views looking East into the Tasman Glacier and West towards the Tasman Sea.

 

3

Summit day, start early and stroll down the Fox Glacier to the base of Chancellor Dome, ascend its broad easy angled Eastern Ridge to the summit. Descend down to the historical Chancellor Hut for one of the best mountain views around.

 

4

Descend down through tussock and bush to the lower Fox Glacier and if there is time, your guide can set some ropes for steep ice climbing on the ice walls. Fly off the ice in the early afternoon and return back to Wanaka.

Please note that due to changeable weather and/or snow and ice conditions during the summer months, this itinerary is subject to change – even to a different alpine region. Rest assured your guide will anticipate this and make the most of your time in the high alpine environment. Alternative programs to the sample Fox Glacier trip below are too numerous to mention here, but are just as action packed and incredibly scenic.
