Glacier Hot Pools Franz Josef

The Glacier Hot Pools is the latest visitor attraction on New Zealand’s rugged West Coast.

Nestled in lush rainforest, the Glacier Hot Pools is a haven of natural tranquility and the perfect way for visitors to unwind and experience a blissful state of pure relaxation after travelling along the coast or enjoying one of its many attractions.

The three invitingly warm main pools and three secluded private pools are surrounded by native bush and fed with pure local glacier water. Massage facilities add to an atmosphere of complete indulgence.

The pools are conveniently located in the heart of Franz Josef township on Cron Street, and can be enjoyed all year round from 12 noon to 10 pm (last entry 9pm).

An evening under the stars, sheltered by nature’s leafy canopy at the Glacier Hot Pools, is a truly enchanting, rejuvenating and unforgettable experience.
