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 Coast Cycle

Lush green rolling plains, wild windswept coastlines and unique wildlife experiences, such as spotting the iconic Kiwi in its natural habitat, characterise New Zealand's southern most region - Southland. This remarkable tour begins by cycling the scenic border roads of the Fiordland National Park and a homestay with traditional Kiwi farmers before reaching the magical wildlife sanctuary of Stewart Island & the Rakiura National Park. On Stewart Island there are opportunities to spot albatross, petrels, cormorants, gulls and blue penguins during the day, while at night you can join an optional Kiwi spotting tour! The wildlife experiences continue at the remote Catlins Coast, home to an ancient petrified forest, fur seals, rare hectors dolphins and the yellow-eyed penguin - the world's rarest penguin - before concluding in Dunedin, famous for its rich Scottish history. Those keen to explore the region more ask us about our 1-day Otago Peninsula cycling extension.
