Franz Josef

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. Franz Josef is in Westland National Park (Te Wahipounamu). Plan a trip to New Zealand easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
