Tasman Glacier Lake Trip

A full on adventure for the keen kayaker. This trip provides a unique opportunity to meet icebergs face to face, view the glacier terminal face from a safe distance and explore the Tasman Lake with plenty time to take it all in.

There may be opportunities to beach the kayaks and explore some of the shoreline areas. We also stop is a glacier bay to have lunch.

New Zealand's longest glacier winds its way down the Southern Alps for nearly 30km before culminating at the Tasman Lake.  The transition from glacier to lake produces impressive icebergs on a regular basis; this truly is 'big berg country'. Launch into the trip of a lifetime as you push away from the shore to explore the wonders of nature's creation.
