Climb up the Ball Ridge and confront the mighty Caroline Face of Aoraki Mount Cook. On this guided hike you will go as close as it's possible to get to Mount Cook on foot without actually being on the mountain. The Aoraki Mount Cook Trek is an easier 2 day option compared to the Ball Pass Alpine Crossing. It is designed for people who want to enjoy a high alpine experience, but have limited time. This trek does not require the use of crampons or ice axe and packs are correspondingly lighter.

 

Highlights

»  Sub-alpine and alpine wonderland
»  Guided high alpine experience
»  Panoramic views of Aoraki/Mt Cook, Mt Tasman and Lake Pukaki

Keen on some background information about New Zealand's National Parks?
