Franz Josef Glacier township is the ideal location for your visit to Glacier Country. A two-hour drive south from Greymouth if you are travelling across from Christchurch on the TranzAlpine Express. A five-hour drive west from Christchurch or six hours north from Queenstown via the Haast Pass. Wanaka is four hours driving time also via the Haast Pass. These times are approximate and don't allow for stopping to look at all the stunning West Coast scenery around every corner. Glacier View Motel is situated north of the township of Franz Josef on SH 6.
