Our Family Southern Explorer trip is an opportunity for children and parents/caregivers alike to discover amazing sights, set and meet physical challenges, take part in rewarding group activities and share the adventures with other families on the trip. The Family Southern Explorer includes two overnight hikes, hiking in the majestic Mt Cook/Aoraki National Park and optional kayaking amongst the ice bergs on the Mueller glacier terminal lake. This trip suits children from the age of about 13 years old (or adventurous 10 years olds). Because of the adventurous nature of these trips we require a ratio of at least 1 adult per 3 children.
