As you may have heard, New Zealand is arguably the adventure capital of the world. From Skydiving to Scuba-diving and everything in between, this country has it all. Our latest adventure took us high into glacier country on Fox Glacier, a 13 kilometer (8 mile) long glacier on New Zealand’s west coast. In order to explore as much of the glacier as possible, we opted for the full day guided hike which took us from 167 meters (548 feet) at the base up to 550 meters (1804 feet) in the most unreal landscape I can imagine. As is usually the case, I think that photos are much more telling of our adventures than words so here are some of my favorites.
