Walks, Tracks & Tramps
Glacier Country has walks and hikes to suit every fitness level and time frame from short, easy 30 minute walks to three day hikes. Walk in the rainforest, take a walk to look for birds, explore historic relics and get a good workout on a tramping track with hot pools at the end. Or enjoy the easy shared walking and cycling track at Franz Josef Glacier. Glacier Country holds delights for everyone who wants to get out and about in nature.
Here we have included descriptions of the walking tracks and hikes in and around Fox Glacier, Lake Matheson, Franz Josef, Okarito and surrounding areas.
Call into the Westland Tai Poutini National Park Visitor Centre and I-SITE in Franz Josef village for up-to-date weather conditions, detailed guides and personal locator beacons, or to learn more about the area.
