    Awesome experience tracking on Tasman glacier

    An unforgettable experience. It was awesome to track on ice with more than 200 meter thickness. Temperature of 13 degree C was good for our group. We really enjoy thru out the entire 3 hours journey.

    Awesome Experience

    I really enjoyed the tasman glacier heli hike. We managed to get lucky with the weather and got to enjoy an ice cave! Our guide was also very friendly and knowledgeable. The time goes by quickly and I wish we had more time to explore more. The group was about 11 people so that takes up a lot of time too. Overall a great experience.

The staff from the Helicopterline company are friendly and professional. the view from the helicopter ride are marvellous. Guide from the Alpine Guide Ltd are friendly,caring and certainly professional and knowledgeable. We got amazed by the the glaciers once we got up there. The glaciers itself is magnificent and pure. I really glad I joined this hell-hike tour.

    Awesome HeliHike Mount Cook Tasman Glacier

    The helicoptor pilot and the glacier hike guide were both very friendly and accomodating. The view from the heli ride to Mt Cook Tasman Glacier was awesome. The glacier hike itself was a nice experience. But i reckon if we went during other season the usage of crampons would be much more appreciated. As it was winter season, the glacier was mostly covered with snow. Anyhow, it was a nice hike. It was a bit windy and that gave the hike an added dimension. Highly recommended. Cheers!
