Glacier Hot Pools are situated in a lush rain forest.
If you are looking for a retreat and tranquil haven to unwind in, this is the perfect way for visitors to experience a blissful state of pure relaxation after travelling along Te Tai o Poutini (The West Coast) or enjoying one of the Wild West Coast's many visitor attractions.
The Glacier Hot Pools are fed and nourished with waters of Ka Roimata o Hinehukatere, the frozen tears of Hinehukatere for her lost love. According to the legends of Ngai Tahu (the local Maori tribe), these tears of aroha (love) were frozen by the gods, forming what is known worldwide as the Franz Josef Glacier, or to Ngai Tahu as Ka Roimata o Hinehukatere , The Frozen Tears of Hinehukatere.
The three beautiful warm pools and three secluded private pools are nestled within the bosom of Tane 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 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 time is 8pm ).
