Franz Josef Vacation Packages


Tucked away on the West Coast of New Zealand's South Island is the small township of Franz Josef, or as some people refer to it, the gateway to Glacier Country. From hiking on one of the biggest glaciers in the country, to seeking out secret little waterfalls, there's no shortage of exciting and adventurous things to do in Franz Josef. Believe it or not, the glacier descends from the Southern Alps mountain range, all the way down to just 300 meters (984 feet) above sea level. Undoubtedly, this makes it one of the steepest glaciers in New Zealand, which is pretty impressive considering that the country is home to the impressive number of 2,900 of them.
