Tasman Valley 4WD & Argo Tours

A unique 4WD & Argo adventure with incredible views of the Tasman Glacier, its terminal lake and 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 on most days,  icebergs in the 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' - the Kea.
