What To Expect

If you’re going on a trip to New Zealand, then you’d like to know that one of the best things that you can do in that country is to venture into the wild and explore its natural wonders. Book through Klook and get to explore the Tasman Glacier, the largest icy wonderland in the Mount Cook area! Your adventure will begin by hopping on a helicopter and going on a thrilling ride that’ll grant you jaw-dropping views of the lush landscapes below. Once you arrive at the glacier, you’ll be taken around by an instructor and you’ll go ice climbing around the area. Feel the thrill of crawling and rappelling down ice walls and explore the deep crevasses. Many tourists prefer to go ice climbing instead of hiking around the area because doing so will get you to venture deep into glacier and discover hidden gems that can’t be reached by simply walking around. Since this ice field is known for its constantly shifting formation, every climbing expedition there is unique because new pathways are opened up every now and then. This is definitely a must-book activity for nature lovers and thrill seekers.
