The Tasman Glacier is the largest glacier in New Zealand, and this hiking experience gives you the one-of-a-kind opportunity to explore it at its highest. Take a skiplane over 7,000 feet above sea level to the glacier’s upper snowfield, and hike around the glacier’s remarkable ice formations. This experience is perfect for adventure-seekers tired of the usual helicopter rides and tour bus trips – and all the hiking equipment you need is already provided, so you can join this tour even if you’re traveling light.
Fly to a landing point high on Tasman Glacier on a helicopter tour that includes a spectacular fly-by of Mount Cook (Aoraki). A guided hike on the glacier explores remote snow fields and ice formations at roughly 4,265 ft. (1,300 mt.), where you’ll use crampons or snow shoes to cross terrain that’s otherwise only accessible with an arduous overland journey.
Enjoy a Southern Alps skiing adventure away from the crowds on this backcountry skiing tour to the Tasman Glacier, Aoraki Mt. Cook.
