Watch the Sunset from the Waiho River Bridge

Rate this Adventure New Zealand Waiho River Bridge

Added by Korey Taylor

This is the perfect sunset spot near Franz Josef. Be sure to bring your camera and catch reflections on the river.

The Waiho River is a glacial fed river from the spectacular Franz Josef Glacier. The main road to get there is Highway 6, which becomes a long single-lane bridge when it crosses the river. If you find yourself staying in the small town of Franz Josef over night then you should make the short walk to the bridge. From here you'll get a beautiful mountain view in all directions and a perfect spot for sunset pictures. Make sure to stop at the 24-hour Mobil gas station in town to grab some tasty New Zealand Beer!

The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.

Hike to Robert's Point (Franz Josef Glacier)

New Zealand / Franz Josef Glacier Trailhead

This trail is one of my favorite in New Zeanand. It wasn't so much 'built' as it was 'discovered'. The trail follows natural erosion and clean exposed flows of glacier carved granite walkways.

Hike to the Fox Glacier

New Zealand / Fox Glacier Carpark

From the carpark follow the well marked trail to the toe of the Fox Glacier. Do not stray from the trail as unstable ice and moraine can be very dangerous.
