Day 33 – Christchurch/Fox Glacier

Posted: December 4, 2012 in Travel

A day of breathtaking scenery. We took the 8.15 Trans-Alpine Express train from Christchurch to Arthur’s Pass and then re-boarded the coach for the remainder of the journey to the Tasman Sea coast and then down to Fox Glacier. We had been doe to take a helicopter flight to fly over and land on the Glacier, but low cloud prevented this and we were only able to see the bottom of the Glacier from below. We will have another chance to do the flight tomorrow.
