Tasman Valley 90 minute 4WD Tour

25th June 2018: The Tasman Valley 4WD tours are closed until 19th July 2018 due to the Department of Conservation closure of the Ball Hut Road because of Avalanche Risk.  We look forward to reopening soon!

A unique 90 minute 4WD adventure with magnificent views of the Tasman Glacier and its gigantic moraine walls.  Your friendly guide is a real Mount Cook character, learn about the area and be entertained by their wealth of knowledge and local stories.  A short walk to a vantage point overlooking the Tasman Glacier and Terminal Lake provides one of the most spectacular photographic opportunities in the Aoraki Mount Cook National Park.

As you travel up the Tasman Valley on a 4WD track you will be amazed at the awesome mountain scenery! During the Spring and Summer months you can see an abundance of Mount Cook Lilies, Celmesia Daisies, Golden Spaniard Spear Grass and many delicate mountain flowers. You may even catch a glimpse of the world's only 'mountain parrot' - New Zealand's cheeky Kea.

Please note the Tasman Valley 4WD 90 minute tour will be no longer operational from 01st August 2018.  Our new Tasman Valley 2.5 Hour 4WD tour will replace the 90 minute product.
