  • On this trip, browse the Keshan National Park, the empty 曠 grasslands and the Schanchon of the south of the Alps, overlooking the Keshan of the final year of the snow. Take a tour of the Tasman Glacier in the afternoon, first in the glacier longing, leading to the rim of the glacier Lake, after a small boat ride in a Blue Glacier lake, close to the largest glacier in New Zealand, appreciating, listening to the glacier melting into the lake of wonders and surging sound, 綴 from 500 years ago the cool ice water. Experience the wonders of nature, and then go to Ticapo along the way to the magnificent wind, wild flowers everywhere feel wonderful, road Puka Lake, Tiffany Blue Lake is more beautiful. The Tasman Glacier: at eight in the morning, the result is that you can't find the place, you can't find it, you're missing the time, and it's the last thing that comes to mind at the hidden restaurant. Walk about 1.5 kilometers, that is to the ferry, wear a life jacket according to the instructions of longing to allocate seats, the whole boat about a hour, longing that icebergs are produced by the collapse of glaciers, the 10% icebergs exposed to the natural environment are milky, and the 90% icebergs under water are "just cyan" because they are not exposed. Glaciers and small icebergs are made of thousands of tiny ice crystals, which can only be seen when the ice is exposed to the natural environment ⬇️.

  • Amazing and unique view of glaciers. 1.5 kms walk and plenty of free parking available. Must visit place at Mt. Cook village.  more »
  • A short drive from Mt Cook and plenty of parking available. The walk to the glacier is short but not too difficult as the DOC has done a great job in installing the steps. Incredible views all around!  more »

  • Really nice place but during the time we went the glaciers were melted. There were only 2 small once floating on the water and you had to pay to get a boat out there to take a closer look at them. We saw them from the viewpoint which is still pretty nice. Worth checking this place out!
  • I almost got killed going down on me tractor!
  • amazing, worth to go.
  • Try Glacier Explorer. A lifetime experience.
  • so nice. worth visiting.
