  • Heymenn 2 Jul 2018
    It's really nice that each tour is in a small group of 4. Our instructor #Tuk is very helpful. Did 4-5 climbs of different difficulties. Highly recommended even for beginners.
  • HSIANG-EN 23 Dec 2017
    Really great experience of climbing glacier, most try!
  • Zabrina 26 Mar 2017
    This was absolutely fantastic. Easily the best tour I have ever done- worth every penny. We were lucky to have a stunning day so we were out on the glacier for 7 hours- ice climbing the whole time. No one in our group had done ice climbing before but we all picked it up quickly.
  • Neal 16 Feb 2017
    It was a exciting trip. Our group of 4 had fun. The guide to participants ratio was just nice. We were happy we made the choice to climb up fox glaciers. One of our highlights in New Zealand!

    Although it took three days because of the rain, it is a good time to enjoy this experience. The coach is very good.

    Later, I changed to General Icehouse Construction Bank, but I didn't feel good. I didn't climb to the top floor.

    We chose to come to Fox climbing adventure. Because the previous few days of the trip was canceled, the next few days the weather has been bad, so this time we are very excited. Today the weather is very good, big sun, the clouds rarely. Helicopter is very shocking, our tour guide is great, omniscient. Climbing ice is absolutely challenging, learning is also very cool. When we climb almost practicing, the tour guide began to take us along the glacier ice. He also told us where to shoot some better photos. That day really learned a lot, very memorable experience!
