Franz Josef Hot Pools

Nestled in lush rainforest, the Glacier Hot Pools is a haven of natural tranquillity and 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 are fed by the rainforest surrounding Ka - Roimata o Hinehukatere, the frozen tears of Hinehukatere for her lost love. According to the legends of Nga - i Tahu (the local Ma - ori tribe), these tears of aroha (love) were frozen by the gods, forming what is known worldwide as the Franz Josef Glacier, or to Nga - i Tahu as Ka - Roimata o Hinehukatere - The Frozen Tears of Hinehukatere.

The three invitingly warm Main Pools and three secluded Private Pools are nestled within the bosom of Ta - ne Mahuta - Guardian of the Forest with his children, the native bush and birdlife creating a tranquil space to revive your tinana (body), hinengaro (mind) and wairua (spirit).

The pools are conveniently located in the heart of Franz Josef township on Cron Street, and can be enjoyed all year round.

All our pools have been gifted their names by our local Maori tribe, Te Runanga o Makaawhio, and reflect our values of relaxation and rejuvenation at the Glacier Hot Pools.
