In the area: Fox Glacier is located in the Westland Tai Poutini National Park and takes its name from Sir William Fox, who visited the Glacier as Prime Minister of New Zealand in 1872. It is one of the few Glaciers in the world which exists in such close proximity to both an ocean and a rainforest. The unique setting of Fox Glacier and the speed of the ice-flow (up to 3 meters per day in places) make for some of the most dynamic ice formations of any glacier. Franz Josef Glacier is located within 20- minutes from Fox Glacier. These glaciers are not missed by tourists who visit New Zealand. Fox Glacier belongs to the West-Coast region which offers many tourist attractions. It is en route between the popular tourist drive from Queenstown to Christchurch.
