To gain basic knowledge of New Zealand geography and the role it plays in tourism


Taking a look at New Zealand glaciers


  • Now we are going to look at glaciers - can you name the three main glaciers of the South Island? Which is the largest and where is it located?

  • Can you describe (write it down)in your own words, just what a glacier is and how they were formed?

  • Can you name three tourism operations that run from glaciers - what are they and what do they offer?
