The Tekapo Trek is in the Two Thumb Range overlooking Lake Tekapo. It is available in 2 and 3 day options and also as a guided snowshoeing trip in winter. It is based from the fully stocked Rex Simpson hut, so that means pack weight is kept to a minimum.
The area encompasses the spectacular landscapes of ice-steepened mountains and broad glaciated valleys of Te Kahui Kaupeka Conservation Park. Views of Mount Cook and surrounding peaks are spectacular from Snake Ridge on your way up to the 2070m Beuzenberg Peak. This is the highest point on the Te Araroa Trail If you are new to overnight hiking, then this is an ideal introduction, especially for familiy groups.
