Hike in the heart of the Southern Alps at Arthur’s Pass. Our route traverses beech forests and sub alpine river flats, passing by open scree summits and picturesque tarns. This is a challenging route that takes us up the Edwards Valley before crossing the main divide into the wild headwaters of the Otehake River. The trail passes through an alpine wilderness of craggy peaks, mountain streams and tussock meadows before descending into the broad river flats of the Hawdon Valley.
On this hike you will experience a remarkable piece of New Zealand that few get to see. Savour the breathtaking vistas of unspoiled backcountry along a trail that is forever changing and guaranteed to provide plenty of awe, wonder and challenge!
You need to be fit enough to carry a backpack with your own personal gear and a share of the group food and equipment.
