The Tasman Glacier is the largest glacier in New Zealand, and this hiking experience gives you the one-of-a-kind opportunity to explore it at its highest. Take a skiplane over 7,000 feet above sea level to the glacier’s upper snowfield, and hike around the glacier’s remarkable ice formations. This experience is perfect for adventure-seekers tired of the usual helicopter rides and tour bus trips – and all the hiking equipment you need is already provided, so you can join this tour even if you’re traveling light.
