The glacier is a part of Te Wahipounamu park, and together they form an official World Heritage Site, which is one of the most famous attractions in the region. Extending over seven miles and dating back more than 7,000 years, the glacier is truly a sight to behold—and guests can do so in a variety of ways, whether by guided or unguided hiking tour, ice climbing tour, or helicopter tour.
To the south, guest will find Westland Tai Poutini National Park, which contains 454 square miles of pristine forests, glaciers, tussock grasslands, lakes, rivers, wetlands, beaches, and snow-capped mountains. It is also filled with a wide-range of flora and fauna, including the rarest species of the already rare kiwi bird—the rowi—of which the only surviving natural population in the world can be found in Ōkarito Forest.
The site is also located eight minutes from Lake Mapourika (the largest lake in the region), 26 minutes from Fox Glacier, and half an hour from Lake Matheson. It is about 1.6 hours from Hokitika, 3.5 hours from Wanaka, and 4.5 hours from Queenstown, and five hours from Christchurch. The nearest airport is in Hokitika, and there is a train and bus route that runs from Christchurch to Franz Josef.
