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!!).

South Island Multi-Activity Adventure

From New Zealand's southern-most tip to its highest peak, this adventure will help you to discover the best of the south on foot, boat and kayak. Journey deep into the heart of the stunning Fiordland National Park and board your floating hotel to discover the pristine beauty of Doubtful Sound. If you're lucky you'll spot bottlenose dolphins and fur seals before continuing on to the wildlife haven that is Stewart Island. Two nights are spent here to ensure you can enjoy the best of the islands activities including spotting a Kiwi, sea kayaking, or exploring the tranquil bush and beach settings by foot. Your multi-activity adventure continues east to the wilds of the Catlins Coast, Dunedin, the Otago Peninsula and then inland towards the glorious Southern Alps. Here you can choose an optional walk to the Hooker Glacier Lake for panoramic vistas of Mount Cook and beyond or visit the Sir Edmund Hillary museum. After a unique boat trip on the Tasman Glacier Lake and afternoon tea on a farm with a Kiwi family your trip concludes in Christchurch.
