Take the bus from outside The Hermitage Hotel to the beautiful Tasman Valley where your guide will lead you on a gentle half hour stroll to the Tasman Glacier Terminal Lake. Here you will board a boat to explore the fascinating glacial landscape dotted with icebergs and the ever-changing ice face of the glacier. The boat passes so close to the icebergs you can touch them! Commentary from our guides imparts their knowledge and passion for this amazing alpine environment.
This trip provides spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and some of the best photographic opportunities available in the national park.

I don't recommend anyone with kids or elders should join a glacier trip with a company named "GLACIER EXPLORERS" at Mt Cook, Lake Pukaki, New Zealand. (you can find this company from FB)
I joined the glacier trip with my kid on 8 Jan 2017. There was a rude bus driver named "Rochelle". This rude driver also work as a guide asked my kid to walk close to group. Rochelle even said if my kid cannot walk as fast as the group, I have to carry him on this rocky road which is very easy to trip over, she completely ignore client safety. Also, she said I only have 2 choices, 1) carry him; 2) go back to the bus and cannot join the tour. She only wanted the tour finish asap and she can finish off her duty.
I can't believe that the staff is that unprofessional and rude to client.
I definitely not recommend this trip and this company with such kind of staff with this attitude......
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 78 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
I was blown away by the icebergs, we got to touch one and saw three carvings on the iceberg which was epic!
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Nice experience. Guides told a lot of good information, impressive to see the glacier-ice so close (ice-bergs in the lake) and we were lucky to see a part dropping into the lake.
Thank You - to the thousands of travellers that have contributed to our Top Voted NZ Activities Map - it's free from Rankers.
Excellent - 2.5 hours, organised well and great experienced guide on boat.
Really impressive ! What a ride ! A unique experience in NZ ! Seeing those giants icebergs floating on the lake around you is unique and the colors are beautiful ! The staff is really knowledgeable about the glacier itself, lake and the icebergs !
Would highly recommend it !
Well organised, efficient, good guiding. Nice boat ride on the lake getting close to the icebergs. Unfortunately due to safety precautions, we had to stay a long way from the terminal face.
Really well organised trip and although you could walk to the glacier yourself and see it from a distance the guides on this trip made it super enjoyable and being able to get on the water and touch the icebergs was a treat. Wonderful photo opportunities and well worth the money.
Friendly, competent, safe, informative. Lovely restaurant at Old Mountaineers afterwards.
