What you can expect

Mount Cook is a truly awe-inspiring sight and an exploration of the Mt Cook National Park is a must-experience when travelling the south island. On this full day Mount Cook tour, explore not only the park, but also travel through spectacular scenery and visit Lake Pukaki, Lake Tekapo and other highlights.

Travelling from Queenstown, you drive through the impressive rugged landscapes over the Lindis Pass into the beautiful Mackenzie Country. From there, you enter the Aoraki/ Mt Cook National Park, home to over thirty 3,000 metre high peaks, five of New Zealand’s largest glaciers and its highest mountain, Mount Cook, standing at 3,751 metre. Enjoy lunch (own expense) in the midst of this amazing alpine landscape before heading back to Queenstown.

My boyfriend and I went on a day tour to Mt

My boyfriend and I went on a day tour to Mt. Cook for my birthday. It was wonderful. The tour bus was spacious, clean and comfortable and the driver was fun and knowledgeable of the area. He provided some interesting commentary at certain points along our trip to Mt. Cook National Park. The park itself was breathtaking. The sights were gorgeous and well worth the trip. It was exactly what I wanted to do for my birthday! I highly recommend this trip if you're looking to see the NZ countryside or go to the national park without driving.

It was great

It was great! 日本人ガイドを事前にお願いしておいたので、運転手の英語に続いてヘッドホンで日本語の解説をしてくれました。マウントクックのバス乗り場が少しわかりにくかったですが、とても満足です。
