Franz Josef Glacier (Kā Roimata o Hine Hukatere) is widely regarded as one of the most unique glaciers in the world. This is because of its location in a temperate rainforest and the fact that it's one of the fastest-moving glaciers around.
We've created a range of tours that explore these unique features up close, providing a spectacular glacier experience whatever your ability or budget.
Walk the path of the glacier's history along the Waiho riverbed and discover all it has left behind. Experience the thrill of a helicopter flight, landing high up on the ice to explore the glacier, or challenge yourself with an adrenaline-packed ice climb. Take on the ultimate glacier adventure with an overnight alpine camping expedition, and experience the magic of the glacier under the stars. If your ultimate glacier experience is all about getting spectacular views from above and a snow landing without the hike, then a scenic flight with Vantage Helicopters is for you.
After a day exploring the glacier with us, we invite you to relax and reflect on your adventure with complimentary access to the Franz Josef Glacier Hot Pools. The perfect end to an unforgettable day.
FRANZ JOSEF GLACIER HOT POOLS
Your glacier trip includes access to the Franz Josef Glacier Hot Pools. What better way to relax after a day in the valley than in the rejuvenating warmth of our hot pools?
Your experience with us would not be complete without spending some time reflecting on your adventure in the relaxing surroundings of the Franz Josef Glacier Hot Pools. Entry to the main pools is complimentary with your Franz Josef Glacier Guides experience, and access to the pools is through the same reception area that you check in for your Glacier Guides experience.
The hot pools are intimately nestled in the lush surrounds of native rainforest and offer three main pools of varying temperatures in which to unwind. As well the three main pools, our facility also offers three private pools available to Franz Josef Glacier Guides' guests for the exclusive upgrade rate of $41.
Our spa and massage facilities are just the thing for aching muscles; treat yourself to a relaxing massage from one of our therapists or an uplifting facial treatment. The perfect end to an unforgettable day.
