Franz Josef Glacier

The South Island's most renowned explorer and geologist, Julius von Haast, named Franz Josef Glacier after the Emperor of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Franz Josef Glacier is a remnant of a much older, larger glacier which flowed from the alpine snowfields right to the sea. The glacier is over 7.5 miles long extending into the rainforest just 3 miles from the Franz Josef township, making it easy to visit. Walk to viewpoints and the terminal face or, for a close-up view of the spectacular ice formations, take a guided glacier walk, helihike or scenic flight.

Te Anau Destination Guide


The village of Otago, which also means “Isolated village” and “place of red earth”, was introduced to the Europeans in the 1840’s. Chiseled by nature, its landscape, rugged snow-capped mountains, transparent rivers, deep gorges and tussock-clad hills is New Zealand’s best kept secret. This recreational paradise is a traveler’s dream with a plethora of activities to choose from: watersports, wine-tasting, mountain-biking and much more! Reputably known for its cold winters, warm summers and abundant wildlife, the unspoiled beauty of Otago is rewarding in any season.
