Glacier Hot Pools, Franz Josef Glacier Reviews

  • This is a spot where they have glacial water in pools and then heat it up to differing temperatures based upon what your comfort level is for relaxing in hot water. We stopped here late at night during a rainy and cold evening and this place was a godsend. About $17 gets you into the pools provided you don't need a swimsuit or towel (all of which are available for rent). The pools are surrounded by trees and beautiful native vegetation and covered with tarps that allowed most of the rain to be caught on the top. A great experience and well worth the price.

  • Absolutely amazing experience. It was so relaxing. The staff were all very helpful and with us being there at the beginning of spring we were able to get a private pool booking with only an hour notice.

  • Very clean, beautiful scenery, and lots of room. We arrived when it opened (11am). The pools are beautiful. 3 different pools set to 36° 38° 40°. Gorgeous landscaping around everything, with ferns hanging over some parts providing some extra protection from rain or sunshine. There are a lot of little nooks for small groups to sit in relative privacy. The changing rooms are nice and well kept. We thought it was just a little too expensive ($28pp) but it was still worth it. I'd recommend if you can dedicate a few hours of time to really soak.

  • $28 entry + $5 if you need a towel. Thses are just pools with hot water in them. Of course you must expect the sulfur smell, but it is mild. Friendly staff but over priced food and limited choice.

  • Lovely hot private pool. The pool and change room is really clean and the environment is nice and quiet. We enjoyed our time there and the girls at tue reception are welcoming and always smiling. Totally worth the money 😊
