The Best Way to Spend a Day in Franz Josef Glacier

Franz Josef township is located 2 minutes from the Franz Josef Glacier. Its wild location provides plenty of opportunity for amazing experiences.

Here's how we think you should spend your day here.

Wake up nice and early from your relaxing sleep at Scenic Hotel Franz Josef Glacier and head to Canavan's Restaurant for a good hearty breakfast.

Then take a stroll up to Glacier Helicopters to check in for your pre-booked Glacier Flight. Booking a flight for earlier in the day is a good idea as the weather is clearer and therefore less chance for cancellation. Remember to take a camera to capture the spectacular sights at the top of the Glacier.

Once you return from your amazing flight head to The Landing for a great value lunch! This popular restaurant gets busy so make sure you grab a table when you can!

Now prepare for adventure with your next activity... across and up the street you'll find Across Country Quad Bikes. The team here will take you on a journey around a river, through forest and over some serious 4x4 tracks! 

You'll be hungry again after your big day out and about so head back down to the hotel and enjoy a drink at the Moa Bar in front of the fire. Then when you're ready for dinner, enjoy a taste of the Wild West Coast at Canavans Restaurant.
