Gift shop on the Main Road in Franz Josef
Sep 2018 • Couples
This is gift shop located within the Alpine Activity Centre along the main road in Franz Josef. It is just across from Snakebite Brewery and has a fair sized carpark next to the shop. Opening hours 8.30am to 9pm daily.

Inside you'll find an expected range of traditional and speciality souvenirs, gifts and other items. Connected to the shop is an tour booking service provider where you can arrange heli-hikes to the area glaciers or other tour activities in the area.

Overpriced

This shop has some nice souvenir items but most of the items can be found at other stores for a lower price (sometimes HALF the price). Be aware and shop around in town (or wait until you're in a bigger city). New Zealand is an expensive country in general but this shop really outdoes itself.

We enjoyed the wide variety of gifts, souvenirs and momentos offered in this shop. There is a good range of prices suiting most people. I was impressed with the kiwiana patchwork fabric on offer!

Quality Gift Shop in an Unusual Location
Apr 2017 • Friends
I wasn't expecting to shop in the Franz Josef glacier area - we had been hiking all morning and appreciating the outstanding natural scenery here - but on a whim we stopped at this shop to buy some postcards and take a break. It turned out to be a nice asset to the area. Besides touristy items for sale, there were some high quality products typical of New Zealand as well as some art work displayed around the shop. . I left with several lovely textiles and a couple of beautiful neck scarves made of New Zealand wool. You never know what you'll find in a wilderness area..such as a shop! Actually, there was also a cafe across the road so this was a tiny settlement set up to serve people traveling through or spending time in the area.
