Franz Josef Glacier

On a tour


Drive Time from Paroa Hotel: 1 hour and 45 minutes

Experience one of the greatest natural wonders of New Zealand at the Franz Josef and Fox Glacier’s. Fly, walk or be guided through ice rock faces and crevasses that date back thousands of years.

South-Westland lies in what is known as the roaring forties because of the strong prevailing westerly winds. These winds cause rain and snow to fall and on average 30 metres of snow each year. Through movement and compaction the glaciers form spectacular views and awe inspiring ice filled valley’s.
