Product Description

Combine the excitement of walking on New Zealand’s biggest glacier, the Tasman Glacier, with the thrill of breathtaking scenic helicopter fly-bys of New Zealand’s largest mountain, Aoraki/Mt Cook. You will fly in to your drop off point on a remote part of the glacier.

All glacier exploring equipment is included. In summer, your guide will outfit you with special ice spikes for your feet, called crampons, designed for hard ice glacier conditions. During the winter months, you will be able to use crampons, try snowshoeing or a combination of both.

Once your crampons or snowshoes are fitted you’ll go exploring the amazing ice formations, following your guide as they cut steps in the glacier, using skills handed down from NZ’s mountain pioneers. Your trip finishes with another spectacular scenic flight back to our Aoraki/Mt. Cook base.

As the glacier is changing all the time our experienced guides are always finding something new and interesting to show our visitors. Time on the ice is up to 2 hours, weather permitting.
