Glacier Hot Pools, Franz Josef Glacier Reviews

  • Nice place, especially after a long walk. Three hot pools with different temperatures. Unfortunately, no pool to cool down inbetween. Not much to offer apart from that.

  • This place is easy and simple and not over the top. Pay your money, good change rooms, lockers, parking. The pools are right next to each other so your not walking through a rain forest to get to the next pool while your freezing. You will find some kids there at times buts its not a big deal. If you dont want kids at a pool go to a fancy one.

  • Fairly welcoming staff, and great facilities. There are 3 pools to choose from of different temperatures. I definitely recommend finding the "coldest" one (36C) first and working your way up to the 38C and 40C ones.

  • Great experience, especially on a not nice weather day! We did the private pools, and the changing rooms were awesome. Heated, private and fully your own! The three public pools were different temperatures which we didn't realize at first, but was really cool.

  • Always awesome never crowded. Friendly staff. Clean secure amenities. Child friendly.
