Absolutely amazing! Would rate this 10 if I could. Our Guide Stewart was great - knowledgeable, great sense of humour, highly experienced and made us feel at ease. I've never walked in crampons or used an ice axe but after Stewarts instruction felt comfortable with both. A big day out on the mountain that was safe, fun and totally amazing. We live in such a beautiful country. I challenge everyone to do this at least once in their life! Once is not enough! Loved it.

If you do think you don't need a guide please read the following: Solo alpine hiking is not recommended so I booked my trip with Adrift e few months in advance. This gave me enough the time to prepare myself for a full days hike/climb. Although I'm not foreign to long hikes and tough terrain but on this hike it was all different. Stu and Hiro were the guides for that day and had everything well prepared and organised. Everything went well up till moment I got confronted with an underlying issue that I wasn't aware off despite my fitness level it literally brought me to my knees. Stu made a good judgement and assessment of the situation. In a calm and professional manner the decision was made that I went down with Hiro. Stu kept in contact during this descent till the point he knew I made it safely back to the car. All I can say I can't thank these guys enough. They know what they are doing and will do everything to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable experience. I can highly recommend Adrift

Great guided trek. I was a solo trekker in a group who were lovely. Stu and Hiro were great guides, very personable and really knew their stuff. Can't wait to go back again!
