The Tasman Glacier is the largest glacier in New Zealand and it’s one of the most popular areas in the country for people who love to go hiking. Book through Klook and take the opportunity to explore the wonders of this glacier! You’ll begin your adventure by hopping on a helicopter that’ll take you to a spot somewhere in the glacier where you can begin your hike. On your way there, you’ll be treated to breathtaking views of the sublime nature below, so make sure you bring a camera so you can take awesome snapshots or video recordings as you fly. Once you arrive there, your hike will start and your guide will take you to the very top. The glacier is known to constantly shift, so its formation and its many pathways change every now and then, making every adventure there unique. At the summit, you’ll find a gorgeous snowfield and you’ll get the chance to wade through it! As you move along, you’ll be able to get incredible glimpses of a gigantic iceberg in the middle of the glacier’s beautiful lake as well as the Hochstetter Icefalls. You’ll also get to see the towering Mount Cook from a distance. This is definitely a must-book activity for nature lovers and thrill seekers.
