Franz Josef

World heritage site · Geologic Formations · Spas
Located in the World Heritage Site that is home to its eponymous glacier, the town of Franz Josef provides a comfortable and welcoming rest spot for adventurers after a long day out on the ice. Arrange scenic flights or join a tour trekking along the spectacular glacier, and don't forget to include some relaxation in your Franz Josef itinerary by soaking in a glacial hot pool (the townspeople will gladly tell you that action is best enjoyed alongside its opposite). With numerous places to stay and good, fresh food all around, Franz Josef is a smart town in a formidable area. Plan the details of your Franz Josef holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use New Zealand road trip planner.
