Fly in by helicopter and hike New Zealand's largest glacier - the Tasman Glacier!
Your adventure starts with a helicopter ride to a safe and remote section of this amazing glacier. Along the way, enjoy the breathtaking views of nature below – make sure to have your camera handy to take incredible photos of the scenery. Once you land, your guide will help you get outfitted with glacier boots and crampons, and then follow their lead as you journey to the top.
Tasman Glacier is renowned for its ever-changing formations, so pathways will change every trip, making it a truly unique experience. You'll spend two hours up on the ice amongst spectacular ice formations and pinnacles, seeing first-hand the extraordinary colours of the ice-flow. Once you reach the top, enjoy a winter wonderland with deep snow that you can try to wade through. As you hike upwards, glimpse the Hochstetter Icefalls and the gigantic iceberg in the middle of the glacier's lake. You'll also get to see the ever-impressive Mount Cook in the distance.
