Glacier Country on New Zealand’s West Coast offers many activities and things to do. Staying in a Franz Josef motel puts you right at the doorstep of some of New Zealand’s most breathtaking scenery.
Staying at Punga Grove means you are only minutes away from some of the most spectacular scenery in New Zealand. No matter whether you love to tackle the outdoors on foot or enjoy the comfort of a helicopter ride over the glacier, this part of the world is uniquely beautiful and an experience everyone should have at least once in a lifetime.
Franz Josef township is an ideal base for visiting both Franz Josef Glacier and Fox Glacier – or either of the two. Ideally you need to allow an extra day or two in case of bad weather, but the wait is definitely worthwhile, and you can enjoy the local scenery and a soak in the hot pools while you wait.
