RIB Wildlife Tours in Mount Cook National Park, New Zealand
We have been operating boat tours on the Tasman Glacier terminal lake in the Aoraki Mount Cook National Park since 1993 and is the sole operator allowed to do so. The only tour of its kind in New Zealand, and one of three in the world! Very few glaciers terminate into lakes and even fewer of these are accessible to the average person. By using a boat we get close to towering ice cliffs and huge floating icebergs. The boats provide a safe way to unseen and inaccessible areas of New Zealand's largest glacier, the Tasman Glacier. The trip An amazing encounter with Tasman Glacier and its terminal lake. Depart from The Hermitage Hotel. The bus will take you to the Tasman Valley, followed by a 30 minute alpine walk through the moraine and National Park.
