Cozy stay
We traveled to Franz Josef for the scenic vistas along the way via rail and coach; which were beautiful! Our sole purpose was to Heli hike up to the Glacier. As luck would have it, it rained. They don't fly in rain so we went to the Kiwi encounter which consisted of seeing 2 kiwi birds and an info room on Glaciers. We also did the 4 wheeler experience in the rain. Fun time but don't trust your phone in the inside pocket of the rain gear they provide, ours got wet enough to fry/ even in it's case ! Closet phone repair is 2 hrs away and replace iPhones run double and triple what we'd pay in the states. Motel was cozy but dated. $2 wash& $1/20 min to dry- so all good. Front desk (Sean ?) was super helpful. Enjoyed meals at Monsoon and The Landing both of which at less than a block away. Supermarket is just a bit further but closes early. Overall, I think we chose well.
