Highlights
  • Long and varied climb on New Zealand’s highest mountain
  • Technically challenging ascent on ice, snow and rock
  • One of the most satisfying and exhilarating climbs in Australasia

The highest peak in New Zealand, Aoraki/Mt Cook is truly Himalayan in size.  It is an impressive and massive peak with five sides, six faces and seven main ridges. The mountain has a vertical rise from valley to summit of over 2500m.

There is no easy route to the top and gaining the summit is a significant achievement.

I have done 2 trips with AC and both were organised fantastically well. Great food and top guides. Big Kiwi Mike was an absolute legend. Met Guy and Suze in Katmandu on the last trip. Could not recommend them more.

Having just finished the Alpine Expedition Course I would like to say thank you for an excellent time. From Em chasing us with emails with updates to the awesome guides Lydia Bradley and Dean Staples, who were not only highly informative but so much fun to be around with us "aussies". As always AC is a highly professional and caring team towards their clients. Also the food is the best!!
