Another holiday for Jak and I. This time two weeks in the South Island of New Zealand. While we were there, we booked a heli-hike on Fox Glacier.


The helicopter took us for a quick flight up to the top of the glacier before dropping us off for a 4 hour guided walk. Absolutely awesome.


Fox Glacier is one of the few rapidly advancing glaciers left in the world. Its been on the march about a metre a week for the last 15 years. Take that global warming!!! (actually its because of the dry hot winds coming off Australia, picking up moisture and dumping it as snow. Climate change is to blame/thank).


You can see a wider view of the tunnel here.
