Enjoy a 30-minute walk through the moraine, board the custom-built MAC boats and experience the Tasman Glacier, its rapidly growing terminal lake and spectacular mountain views.
Icebergs of every shape and size periodically tear away from the glacier allowing you to touch and taste the 300-600-year-old glacial crystals.
Experienced guides provide interpretations of glaciation, terminal lake formation, plate tectonics, a brief coverage of local and climbing history, and flora and fauna – giving you insights into the Tasman Glacier and the creation of New Zealand.
The glacier tours operate from the 1st of September (subject to conditions) until the end of June. The glacier lake freezes over during winter so the start of the season is subject to the lake thawing. You can book your tour with Glacier Explorers at The Hermitage Hotel, Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park.
