Attractions Around Lake Matheson, New Zealand

The West Coast Tai Poutini National Park and Fox Glacier offer the opportunity for all kinds of activities and sightseeing.

You can partake in glacier walks, heli hikes, ski tours, tandem skydiving, mountaineering, scenic flights, kayak tours, boat tours, lake tours, fishing, bird watching, wilderness hiking and exploring.

When you have or get an opportunity, don't neglect to visit Gillespie’s Beach. It is only a 20 minute drive from Fox Glacier Township and offers some wonderful views of the Southern Alps, old mining structures and is home to a seal colony.

If you would rather see penguins, then the Fiordland Crested penguin colony can be found 60 minutes south of Fox Glacier at Monroe Beach and a White Heron Sanctuary Tour will take you to the nesting ground of the white herons.

It will take you several days to see and do it all, but after all that excitement and having been busy and active all day long, you can get rid of the fatigue and relax your sore muscles in one of the glacier hot pools.

The park offers something for practically anyone; it has mountains, gorges and slopes to the east, snow on high altitudes, rainforests below and many river mouths, wetlands and lakes and the best part of it all is that the entrance to the park is free.

You will not have a problem finding accommodations in this area, because there are plenty around in Fox Glacier and Franz Josef Glacier, including hotels, motels, cottages, lodges, vacation rentals, and more and there is no lack of restaurants, shops and galleries either.

Boredom is out of the question at Lake Metheson, unless it is by your own choosing. It is a wonderful destination for a wonderful vacation!
