Glacier Hot Pools, Franz Josef Glacier

Nestled in lush rainforest, the Glacier Hot Pools is a haven of natural tranquility. Our pools are the perfect way for visitors to unwind and experience a blissful state of pure relaxation after travelling along Te Tai o Poutini (The West Coast) or enjoying one of its many attractions.

The Glacier Hot Pools offers visitors to Franz Josef a relaxing natural sanctuary.

We're located just two hours drive from Greymouth, six hours from Christchurch and a five hour drive from Queenstown.

Nestled in a heavily wooded rainforest, beneath mature 30 metre tall trees, the temperatures of the three main pools and three secluded private pools range from 36 to 40 degrees.

Massage facilities add to an atmosphere of complete indulgence.

Amid this tranquil and enticing setting, the natural water features and call of native birds calm the mind and nourish the spirit.

As you immerse yourself into the Glacier Hot Pools, day-to-day worries disappear as our team takes care of the finer details. Towels, lockers, swim clothing retail and refreshment facilities are all available on site.

Watch out for the introduction of further main and private hot pools, and luxurious spa facilities in the future.

The pools are conveniently located in the heart of Franz Josef township on Cron Street, and can be enjoyed all year round from 1 pm to 9pm (Last entry 8pm).
