The Tasman Glacier in Aoraki/Mt Cook National Park is one of the most remarkable sights in all of New Zealand, and now it’s possible to not only get up close to it, but actually go hiking on it!
The largest glacier in New Zealand is gorgeous year-round, but when it’s covered in a fresh blanket of snow surrounded by white peaks, it takes on a whole new level of beauty. Armed with crampons and snowshoes, you board a helicopter from Aoraki/Mt Cook airport to take you right onto the glacier, and this is where the adventure begins.
Go trekking across the glacier, learning more about how these natural wonders are created, and learn about how climate change is affecting their existence around the world. With glaciers disappearing at an alarming rate, now is the time to see them up close and personal, then take action to help protect them for future generations.
