tourist attractions of Franz Josef Glacier


There is so much to see and do at Franz Josef Glacier. To fully experience Glacier Country, you need to immerse yourself in the landscape. It is not until you make footprints on a high alpine snow field, journey deep into the towering rainforests, explore the blue ice caves of the glaciers, tackle a trout on a beautiful lake or contemplate the mountain reflections in Lake Matheson that you will truly encounter our wilderness.

Choose from guided glacier walks, kayaking, kiwi encounters, quad biking, off-road buggies, tandem skydiving and white-water rafting. There is also a range of scenic flights (helicopter or fixed wing, with or without snow landings), horse treks, hot pools, kayaking and more. The diverse range of activities in and around Franz Josef Glacier is available all year round.
