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!!).

Coast and Canyons Trekking

Discover the northern regions of the South Island through a series of hand selected daywalks exploring superb wilderness settings before recounting your day around the campfire at secluded cave campsites. At Kahurangi National Park, which boasts some of New Zealand's oldest rocks, rarest birds and most exotic plants, you'll trek through beech forest, past limestone sinkholes and across tussock-covered mountain slopes. There is also the option to summit Mt Arthur (1795m) for panoramic views of the Nelson region. Transfer to the coastal forests at Paparoa National Park to enjoy walking through lush rainforest set in a limestone canyon, wade across crystal clear rivers, explore glow-worm caves and enjoy watching the antics of New Zealand fur seal pups at a breeding colony. This is a true wilderness lover's adventure as you sleep out beneath limestone overhangs in native forest settings, learn river-crossing skills and swim in New Zealand's beautiful, clear rivers. This tour easily links with our Glaciers and West Coast Trekking itinerary.
