Alpine Guides, Mt Cook New Zealand
Alpine Guides professional IFMGA/NZMGA mountain guides are based year-round in Aoraki Mount Cook National Park, and work throughout the Southern Alps.
Summer season is winding down, but not finished
April is our last 'official' month of the season. Typically this is a great time for working on your mountaineering skills with a refresher like our Glacier Experience Course - with firm climbing conditions and great overnight freezes.
Early April (before the days get too short) is also the time to think about alpine rock and major peaks like Malte Brun.
Guide availability is limited through April, so get in touch soon to make a booking.
