Chief guide Charlie Hobbs with over 30 years of guiding experience has explored every inch of the Tasman Glacier and knows the best areas to visit on this incredible journey.
This fly-in, fly-out helihike combines the excitement of walking on the mighty Tasman Glacier and the excitement of two helicopter (or skiplane) flights. By flying in you are able to access and explore the white ice of the Tasman Glacier where it runs beside the biggest mountains in New Zealand and where the glacier’s forces work hard and often create spectacular ice formations.
Explore the amazing ice formations and possibly ice caves – yes, ice caves! Discover the workings of the Tasman Glacier and how it flows and what makes the crevasses and sink holes appear.
Bookings for Tasman Glacier Heli-Hiking are located at the Old Mountaineers Café, Bar & Restaurant, next door to the DOC Visitor Centre in Aoraki/Mount Cook Village.
