The Aoraki Mount Cook region offers some of the most spectacular alpine scenery within the South Island of New Zealand. We combine an awesome scenic helicopter flight before you descend on to a snowy mountain to begin your snowshoeing experience.
Modern, lightweight snowshoes make walking easy, so you can enjoy the incredible experience on the mountain: natural silence and amazing views across the Mackenzie Basin to Aoraki Mount Cook, and the giants of the Southern Alps.
Your guide will lead you over snowy plateaus and rolling terrain where you may want to build a snowman, or simply take in the pristine alpine air of this unique adventure.
