About
On this full-day 12-hour tour you’ll experience the unique alpine landscapes of the Southern Alps as you travel with us from Queenstown through Mackenzie Country and into Aoraki Mount Cook National Park, home to snow-capped mountains, impressive glaciers and New Zealand’s highest peak, Aoraki Mt Cook (‘Cloud Piercer’). Upon arrival, enjoy approx 3.5 hours in Mt Cook Village to explore some of the incredible walks and activities available (at your own expense), or extend your stay and opt for an overnight stay at the Hermitage Hotel. Altitude Mt Cook tours are limited to a maximum of 16 passengers, ensuring small groups so everyone can enjoy the best New Zealand hospitality that we have to offer as well as enjoying lots of fun and informative commentary from your local guide and plenty of off-the-beaten-track visits away from the crowds.

A great day with a great tour guide Beau !!!
What an extraordinary great opportunity. Booked last moment like just a previous night and got confirmation. We meet to a great personality called Beau ( Sorry if I have spelled wrong 😬). He was giving all details through out the day. Also helped us to get the Heli flight booking for Tasman Glacier visit. Thank you Altitude for having such a great staff. KUDOS
