The early November trek up to Caroline Hut was absolutely fantastic! Although challenging, the trek was truly rewarding and I learned a great deal to add to my basic mountaineering skills. I have our guide, Bia, to thank for this experience. Not only was she very professional, knowledgeable, and highly competent, she managed our skill ability exceedingly well.

My husband and I were extremely happy with our trip to the Caroline Hut. Our guide, Bia, was outstanding in so many ways. She was encouraging, supportive, enthusiastic, and showed a genuine interest in ensuring we enjoyed the trip. We had never spend a night in a hut and really enjoyed the experience. The hut was wonderful and the meal Bia cooked us was excellent. We had also never used crampons and ice axes and had fun learning new skills.

Ball Pass was by far the best hike myself and partner have done to date. You can expect to be physically and mentally challenged as it is no walk in the park and you must be focused on what you

Thank you for one of the best adventures I have ever had. It was beautiful and tough at the same time, and I had an absolute ball.

I'd like to thank you for an awesome experience. Also, Ewan was fantastic. As I mentioned I'm not too good with heights, and there aren't many guides who could have got me across the pass. Ewan oozed experience and knowledge and gave us confidence which made the whole experience so much more enjoyable and less stressful. I can't commend Ewan highly enough and will recommend your organisation to other people on the back of my experience.

It was a great trip, great guides, great hut, very well organised, personal, small group, really: excellent!!! Hopefully you will be able to continue to work in this small scale personal approach with such great guides. You are really lucky to have this private hut. As you can see on my weblog, I described it as probably the best located hut of New Zealand with its stunning views and proximity of the highest mountain of NZ, Mount Cook.

The whole package of experiences is superb.....of driving up to the start in the old Troop Carrier, the ridge climb with a glacier over your shoulder, a great hut at the end of the day, excellent food, exciting locations and amazing views....it's really, really good......and I know this because everyone on the trip had such a wonderful time and kept talking about it afterwards.

The crossing turned out to be all that it was made out to be. I’ll always cherish the views of the surrounding mountains, the crisp cool air and tramping in the snow in the summer. This was the first time I had used crampons. Andy and Mike were both superb guides – thoughtfully accommodating to the needs of the moment at all times.
