You fly in to your drop off point on a remote part of the glacier, exploring where nature’s forces work hardest, often creating spectacular ice caves and arches.
Your guide will outfit you with special ice spikes for your feet, called crampons, designed for glacier conditions. Then you’ll go exploring the amazing ice formations, following your guide as s/he cuts steps in the glacier, using skills handed down from NZ’s mountain pioneers. Your trip finishes with another spectacular scenic flight back to our Aoraki/Mt. Cook base.
Time on the ice is up to 2 hours, weather permitting.
Cost includes Two scenic flights, guide, quality leather boots, socks, gators, snow shoes, harness (if required), walking poles, jacket & over-trousers, gloves.
