Soothe your aching muscles at Glacier Hot Pools, fed by the icy waters of the nearby Franz Josef Glacier. Kick back and relax in one of three different main pools, featuring temperatures up to 41 C (105.8 F), all the while surrounded by verdant rainforest foliage, a lush tree canopy, and intricately landscaped environments. You can use the onsite heated changing facilities during your visit, as well as the security lockers and towel rental services for a small fee. Children can also enjoy the pool complex, but require adult supervision at all times by rule.

  • Booked Private Hot Pool, great value for 45 minutes....was more than long enough. Clean facilities, friendly staff. Pools set in beautiful native Bush, private surroundings. Private shower and toilet.
  • Lovely little covered 'outdoor' hot pools. Steam and shrubbery give a slightly secluded vibe. 3 temperatures for the pools give a good variety on heat.
