Aoraki / Mount Cook

Vous êtes ici

Mount Cook village nestles below New Zealand’s tallest peaks. It’s an ideal base for alpine walks that will leave you breathless in more ways than one.

The village of Mount Cook is a comfortable haven in one of the most unforgiving parts of New Zealand. On every side, the Southern Alps scrape the sky. Even in summer, the weather can change in the blink of an eye. The region is only 44 kilometres from the coast, so storms can arrive suddenly from the Tasman Sea to create dangerous conditions for climbers. However you don’t have to be a mountaineer to interact with the stunning scenery; there are various alpine walks beginning near the village, all about three hours return. Flightseeing, tours to the Tasman Glacier and heli-skiing (in winter) are other ways to optimise your time here. Functional facts: Approx. population 220, Department of Conservation Visitor Centre, limited shopping.
