Franz Josef Glacier Tourism & Travel Guide - Know Before you Go!

Franz Josef Glacier Overview

New Zealand's Glacier Country is at the heart of the broader Te Wähipounamu area, protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Maori legend tells of a girl losing her lover who fell from the local peaks, and her flood of tears freezing into the glacier, now known as Franz Josef. Discover the twin glaciers of Franz Josef and Fox, see the mirror reflection of the Southern Alps in Lake Matheson and explore the picturesque village of Okarito on the sea with its breathtaking views, magnificent birdlife and unique examples of local history. You can hike up the glaciers or choose to go up in a helicopter and walk across the broken ground.
