Wilderness Cruise on Terminal Lake

Start the boat’s motors and set out on an exciting expedition of glacial discovery. Only a handful of glaciers terminate in lakes and this is one of them, high in New Zealand’s Southern Alps. 

The Tasman Glacier seems to have mistakenly strayed into the Terminal Lake. It will serve as an astonishing backdrop, blocking out the sun in all its mighty magnificence. Venturing close enough for your boat to be engulfed by this humongous ice hill’s shadow, you’ll be humbled by its intimidating stature. 

With a highly competent captain and guide in charge of your cruise, you’ll float close to icebergs of all shapes and sizes, including some which date back almost half a millennia. Given the chance to chomp on some of the crystals of pure ice, the concept of freshness will assume new meaning.
