Mount Cook Aoraki Ascent

As for the Mt Cook trip, it was absolutely brilliant. Thoroughly enjoyed it and the 10 day course taught me a lot! I'm already thinking of what I would like to climb next.... Possibly something in the Himalayas. Just need to keep up the fitness (and save up a lot of money!!).

Southern Lakes Cycle

This superb cycling adventure from Christchurch to Queenstown offers you a chance to explore the vast and impressive Mackenzie Basin by bike to truly appreciate its huge glacial lakes and snow-capped mountains. The itinerary also allows you an opportunity to stretch the legs to admire the grandeur of Aoraki Mount Cook, New Zealand's highest mountain, when you walk beneath its flanks. You'll begin the tour cycling along quiet rural roads past small farmlets and communities before setting off on a superb ride alongside the stunning turquoise lakes of Tekapo and Pukaki, following the Waitaki River and its lakes to the coast via the "big-sky country" in Central Otago before finishing at the impressive Lake Wakatipu in Queenstown. In Queenstown we can help you extend your stay so you can sample the great shopping offered by this charismatic mountain community, widely regarded as the 'Adventure Capital of the World'. If you wish to extend your stay this tour links perfectly with our Milford Sound Cycle.
