The Glacier boat trip was a unique experience. A beautiful morning, we ere picked up as explained, transported in a comfy smallish coach, then walked from the car park - an easy & pleasant walk to the boats. The first sight of the glacial lake is fascinating and compelling with the small icebergs from the latest 'calving' floating calmly on the blue/milky lake with the dramatic moraines and mountains behind. Our guide 'Chris was charming, knowledgeable and friendly. We went right up to the icebergs and touched the ice, looking at the ancient 'blue ice' before the sun and light bleached it clear. The perfect clarity of the ice revealed small rocks & fragments that had been frozen into the glacier as it made its way down the valley perhaps thousands of years ago. It felt safe but quite awe inspiring. The views all around were amazing - so much to look at including the face of the Tasman Glacier. A great learning experience too.
