From the amazing blue ice fields of the glacier to the surrounding rainforest, visiting Franz Josef is the experience of a lifetime.
The glacier itself is only 5 kilometres from the town. A short walk from the car park will get you to the face. From there you will find a number of options for taking in this incredible natural wonder.
The Franz Josef region offers a number of activities to partake in. Aside from the glacier there is kayaking tours, quad biking, sky diving and horse riding.
The region is part of the Te Wāhipounamu World Heritage Park (designated in 1990).
