Trip Itinerary

  1. Christchurch to Fox Glacier

    And so the journey begins! The Canterbury Plains make for pretty window views today – but we’ll be in mountain territory in no time. We’ll make a pit stop by the stunning Lake Matheson en route to Fox Glacier. Fingers crossed for good weather so you can see New Zealand’s two tallest mountain peaks reflected in the mirror-like lake!
