Be mesmerised by the Southern Alp's impeccable ice architecture during this full day tour. Fly over shimmering mountains and waterfalls to the upper Tasman Glacier icefall, where you will embark on a two hour hike exploring ice caves and crevasses. Includes four scenic flights throughout the day.
Prepare to immerse in a frosty paradise as you spend the day at New Zealand's longest glacier, the Tasman Glacier. Your adventure begins with a scenic flight from Queenstown to Mount Cook Airport, where you'll fly over the spectacular Southern Alps studded with over 3000 glistening glaciers.

Following your hike, you will return to the airport by helicopter to meet your plane for the return journey to Queenstown.
