The glacier hot pools are just hot pools. They are a good option on a rainy day. We spent a VERY wet afternoon there one summer. They were packed, but a nice place to get out of the rain where getting wet didn't matter.

Do the heli hike up to the Franz Joseph Glacier - it is really incredible. I can't wait to do it again.

the quad bikes in Franz is a great experience and an opportunity to see at first hand the natural history of the region.

Okarito is not far away, lovely place to visit.
