About the Glacier Hot Pools

Immerse yourself in the pure rainforest and glacier waters of the West Coast.

 

 

 

The Glacier Hot Pools are fed by the waters of Kā Roimata o Hinehukatere, the frozen tears of Hinehukatere for her lost love.  According to the legends of Ngāi Tahu (the local Māori tribe), these tears of aroha (love) were frozen by the gods, forming what is known worldwide as the Franz Josef Glacier, or to Ngāi Tahu as Kā Roimata o Hinehukatere – The Frozen Tears of Hinehukatere.

Glacier Hot Pools is a wholly New Zealand owned business.  A true NZ experience from Ngai Tahu Tourism.

The three invitingly warm main pools and three secluded private pools are nestled within the bosom of Tāne 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 (spirt).

The pools are conveniently located in the heart of Franz Josef township at Glacier Base on Cron Street. 

Open all year round from 1pm to 9pm (last entry 8pm).
