Mount Cook & Lake Tekapo
Mount Cook, New Zealand's highest mountain, is suitably set within the phenomenal Mount Cook Aorangi National Park. With an abundance of striking glaciers and imposing mountains the entire region is simply spectacular.
Lake Tekapo – It's divine turquoise hue set against the striking mountains makes it a remarkably beautiful location and the ideal place to get a great shot of Mount Cook in all it's splendour.
Franz Josef Glacier – Its 'giant tongues of ice' reach out to the rainforest covered surrounds and in some places it is just 250 metres above sea level. The dramatic beauty of Franz Josef can be appreciated on foot, by rafting along the Waiho River or by absorbing the environment at the Okartio Lagoon. Nestled at the base of the rainforest clad Southern Alps is the Fox Glacier Township.
Explore - Exploring the wilderness by foot is very popular and there are numerous mountain walks to choose from. Alternatively you could try something a little more challenging and hire a guide to take you mountain climbing.
Ski Adventuers – Ski planes are able to land on the Tasman Glacier and you can even go heli-skiing. The sheer scale of the environment and the utter isolation will make you feel like you're in a place that no one has ever been to before.
