Here’s our pick of the best walks & hiking tracks in Franz Josef
There are so many great walks in Franz Josef, it’s hard to decide which are the best. We really liked the Franz Josef Glacier walk and Callery Gorge walk for easy fitness and great views. See the full list of walks a bit further down this page. I haven’t managed to hike up Roberts Point yet, but Garry has and the hard slog to get to the summit was well worth it especially on a sunny day for excellent views of Franz Josef Glacier.
Better do the Glacier walk now!
Unfortunately, the view of the glacier face is getting further and further away with the glacier receding at such a fast rate, it’s a shame. Best you go there quick before you can’t see it at all unless you take a heli hike or a scenic plane flight.
