Things to do at Franz Josef Glacier

The Franz Josef Glacier and the nearby Fox Glacier together make up what the locals affectionately call ‘glacier country’ and they’re considered one of the most accessible wilderness zones in the world. Regardless of fitness and age, we’d recommend a helicopter tour of the glacier to truly appreciate the size and magnificence of the natural wonder. Besides the ‘heli-hike’, there are aerial tours by fixed-wing aircraft, too. For those who want a physical challenge, ask the reception desk for a guided ice-walk to the terminal face of the glacier. There’s also plenty of hiking in the nearby forests, and the village is as picturesque as it’s remote. But worry not, there’s more. Add kayaking, cruising, long walks by the beach, visits to the nearby wildlife conservation centre and fishing to the list. Surprised? But that’s just New Zealand for you.
