“Untouched must-see National Park.”

The majestic Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park is an expanse of untouched, awe-inspiring alpine landscape sprawled out over more than 700km in the Mackenzie region. From unbelievably blue lakes and wide open skies, to jagged mountain ranges piercing the clouds, exploring Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park offers an off-the-beaten-track adventure that will leave you amazed.

Walkers and hikers are spoilt for choice in the Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park, with trails ranging from easy short walks to challenging alpine expeditions. Stop to breathe in the fresh mountain air, look up at the unending sky, and marvel at the surrounding ranges.

Formally established in 1952, there are 19 peaks over 3000 metres within the National Park; the awesome Southern Alps include the majestic and iconic Aoraki/Mount Cook, New Zealand's tallest mountain.

Giant glaciers cover 40% of the land, including New Zealand's largest glacier, the Tasman Glacier, and the four other major valley systems of the Godley, Murchison, Hooker and Mueller. Getting up close to one of these ancient natural phenomena by one of the many glacier experiences has to be seen to be believed.

Nestled in the park is Aoraki/Mount Cook Village, which has accommodation options for travellers exploring the park. Glentanner is a 15-minute drive away and also offers accommodation options. The rugged and ever-changing landscape surrounding these towns is spectacular all year round.
