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!!).

West Coast Hike & Kayak Adventure

The South Island's wild west coast is contrasted by lush rainforests, surreal coastlines as well as glaciated alpine wilderness, making it one of the most spectacular areas of New Zealand to explore. This adventure takes in all the highlights as you travel from Christchurch up to Picton and then along the rugged west coast towards the adventure capital of Queenstown. The itinerary is packed with exciting activities including kayaking the sheltered waters of Queen Charlotte Sound, trekking and sailing in the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park, heading underground to experience black water cave rafting in the Buller Valley or join an optional heli-hike glacier on Fox Glacier. You'll also spend time admiring the blow holes at Punakaiki, learning about Maori legends and enjoy the world's first and only ocean to alps river jet boating tour in a World Heritage area.
