Put a high point in your New Zealand holiday with a 3 day alpine crossing in Aoraki Mount Cook National Park. Take in breathtaking views of Aoraki Mount Cook. Encounter the comic native mountain parrot, the kea, and enjoy unique alpine flora.

Relish the adventure of learning how to move safely across snow and a small glacier and how to use crampons and ice-axe from your professional mountain guide. You don't need to be a mountaineer, but you do need to have extensive overnight hiking or backpacking experience. All equipment is provided.
