Heartland Hotel Glacier Country
Heartland Hotel Glacier Country (formerly known as Scenic Circle Glacier Country Hotel) is privileged to be located within a unique world heritage area. The internationally recognised Westland World Heritage Park encompasses 2.6 million hectares of spectacular wilderness, including the Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers. Heartland Hotel Glacier Country is just five minutes drive from Fox Glacier.
This cosy West Coast accommodation has everything you want after exploring glacier country - an armchair by the fire, a handy restaurant and bar offering tasty and filling meals and a comfortable, quiet bed to fall into. What's more, the Heartland Hotel Glacier Country is just five minutes drive from Fox Glacier.
As tourism reduces over the winter months, Heartland Hotel Glacier Country goes into 'hibernation mode.' Lower guest numbers reduces the need for two hotels in Fox Glacier township so our guests are ensured a warm welcome – right across the road – at the historic Heartland Hotel Fox Glacier. The Heartland Hotel Glacier Country will be closed for the winter season from the 1st of May and reopens 1st of October. Please note our Heartland Hotel Fox Glacier and Scenic Hotel Franz Josef will be operating through this period to accommodate your West Coast accommodation requirements.
