Explore this stunning World Heritage Area.
The Franz Josef glacier is a natural wonder- with stunning icy glaciers and clear-water lakes and grassy valleys where the icy mass once stood. Making your way through the glacier truly is an adventure- with helicopter tours taking you to the top to explore the caves and crevasses, and kayaking tours allowing you to paddle through the untouched rainforests and estuaries. It is also home to the West Coast Wildlife Centre, the largest kiwi-hatching facility on the island. Whether you head upwards to the glacier, or along the valley, it can be sure that you will have an adventure at the Franz Josef Glacier.
