Plan Your Trip to Franz Josef: Best of Franz Josef Tourism

By Colette V
PLAN YOUR TRIP
Franz Josef
The quaint West Coast, South Island town of Franz Josef is named after the Franz Josef Glacier. Which in turn, legend has it, is named for a girl whose lover died in a fatal fall. She cried so much that her tears pooled, eventually freezing into a block of ice. The magic of this fable isn’t lost on the town or the tourists who flock to the tragically romantic site.
