  • Yok Teng 31 Oct 2018
    Although it’s similar to the public track, the guides are really knowledgeable and share loads of information about NZ flora and fauna. Way more informative than simply walking to the terminal face by yourself

    The whole trek in all was amazing. The views are unbelievable. There are no words to describe the beauty of the glacier from its heart. Guide was so professional and worked really well in this.
