Franz Joseph

New Zealand's Franz Joseph village on the South Island's West Coast is renowned worldwide and home to the famous Franz Josef Glacier. A treasured spectacle not to be missed. Exploring the ice caves, streams, ice walls and crevasses on an ice giant is an incredible thing to do and the flight by helicopter onto the glacier provides stunning views of the glacier valley. Easily accessible from the main road, the magnificent Franz Josef Glacier is decreasing in size by 6 meters a year. These rivers of ice are among the most unique Glaciers in the world. The Franz Josef village and nearby Fox Glacier township offers a base for exploring these stunning areas and have essential services and many other activities as well as glacier climbing and viewing. Meet and discover New Zealand's rarest kiwi, the Rowi, at the West Coast Wildlife Centre. Relax and enjoy the Glacier Hot Pools. Take an unforgettable flight up onto the glacier itself! Visiting Lake Matheson is one of the highlights of the area with stunning mirror views of Aoraki/Mt Cook and Mt Tasman. There is just so much to see and do in this beautiful place in the world.
