Franz Josef, West Coast
Our Franz Josef accommodation on the West Coast is all about quality: our hotels, the Scenic Hotel Franz Josef and luxury accommodation, Te Waonui Forest Retreat provide guests with every home comfort and more. Both of these Franz Josef hotels are located within a short distance from the glacier, on the edge of the village and in the rainforest itself.
The magnificent Franz Josef glacier and wild rainforests of the West Coast are key visitor highlights in this rugged and scenic region. They can be viewed by foot or by air through guided walks or helicopter tours. It's well worth staying in this area for a few days to experience the natural attractions of the Westland World Heritage Park and the luxury of our Franz Josef hotels.
