Franz Josef Glacier Hot Pools - Main Pool Entry

Step into a haven of tranquillity at Franz Josef Glacier Hot Pools...

Nestled among the lush native rainforest in the heart of Franz Josef, the Glacier Hot Pools provide a truly unique setting for absolute relaxation.

The West Coast is known for its water which brings life to the rainforest and shapes the surrounding landscape. This ample natural resource has been harnessed to create an experience that revives your tinana (body), hinengaro (mind) and wairua (spirit).

On offer are three main hot pools of varying temperatures, along with three secluded private pools, spa and massage treatments and a licensed café.

The pools are located in the heart of Franz Josef township at 63 Cron Street, and are walking distance from most accommodation. Franz Josef is a two hour drive from Greymouth, six hours from Christchurch and five hours from Queenstown.

Wet day activity

Good activity for a really wet day. Good disability facility in ladies change room but more mats needed between change room and pools. Good pools. Clean. Staff pleasant.

A West Coast Icon!

As local West Coasters my daughter and I experienced the hot pools of Franz Josef during August on a road trip south and what a spectacular setting. To soak in such peaceful, natural surrounds was absolute bliss. Not one, but three pools to enjoy. The facilities were first class with super clean changing rooms and with the provision such as hair dryers it just completed a cool time indeed. Its all there.. massage packages, beauty packages and bath robes to swoon around in like rock stars. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful facility. With much gratitude. Manaaki koe Ngai Tahu.

It’s not a quiet environment

There are 3 pools with temperature 36-38-40deg Celsius. Overall the surroundings is nice, relaxed. except water looks a bit unclean during our visit, another reason for my low rating was due to there is a group of young ladies speak very loudly, especially when their group is growing bigger at one time. This is not swimming pool :)
