“A great iceberg tour”
Review of Glacier Explorers

Glacier Explorers
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 11, 2012

This tour gives a fantastic close up encounter with icebergs in the lake and a great view of New Zealand's largest glacier, the Tasman Glacier. We toured the terminal lake in a boat with a great guide. There were many Icebergs of every shape and size. We would do it all over again - highly recommended.

You must do this tour. It is a once in a lifetime experience to see the icebergs floating on the lake. You get up close and the guides are very well informed.

This was a unique experience - seeing icebergs in a lake surrounded by ice-capped peaks including Mt Cook. Excellent and knowledgable guides. Great opportunity to take photos. No issues with getting wet. Bit of a walk into the lake but worth it. If you are in the area of Mt Cook, you must do this.

A lively guide, a unique upclose experience with flipping and touching the icebergs on a glorious summer day (1st day of winter actually!)
The only thing is the somewhat tiring 20 minute walk to the boats - our group was speedwalking, I say! Could feel the lactic acid building up in my thighs but that's just me. What awaits you at the end of the walk is worth it :)

You can to taste a piece of glacier- cool.

Wow. That was amazing. I am left in awe of how beautiful New Zealand is. This is one of the best experiences I've had in NZ. I would love to come back here. It's worth it, seriously there's nothing like it. It's a good walk to the Lake/Glacier. The tour is worth it, the guide is very knowledgeable and you really feel like you are exploring an unchartered territory.
