Family friendly (age restriction of 10 yrs) exploration of the lower part of the Tasman Glacier where depending on snow/ice conditions you will either explore the ice caves mid glacier or the seracs of the upper Glacier Neve. The experience will consist of a helicopter or ski plane, and in some cases both depending on landing sites being used. You will either explore the ice caves mid glacier or the seracs of the upper Glacier Neve. Once your crampons are fitted you’ll go exploring the amazing ice formations, following your guiders as they cut steps in the glacier, using skills handed down from NZ’s mountain pioneers.
From here we will fly you on a spectacular scenic flight to a mountain top where you will have a picnic provided with stunning views of Aoraki/Mt.Cook and the Southern Alps.
Your trip finishes with another spectacular scenic flight back to our Aoraki/Mt. Cook base. All gear and equipment is provided for and all fitness levels welcome with no experience needed.
