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.
