New Zealand Mountaineering Expeditions
Alpine Guides Expeditions are climbing packages for NZ's most notable peaks: including Aoraki/Mount Cook, Mount Tasman, and Mount Aspiring.
The packages are for a set number of days. The duration takes into account the length, difficulty, access and egress, changing weather and route conditions.
New Zealand's highest peak is a long, physically demanding climb of moderate technical difficulty by the standard route.
The highest peak in the Malte Brun range, and one of NZ's classic alpine rock summits.
The "Matterhorn of the Southern Alps", is the highest peak in NZ, outside the Mount Cook region.
NZ's second highest mountain presents a beautiful wind-carved ice summit. Mt Tasman is a serious and committing climb for the fit and experienced alpinist.
A long trip for experienced and fit mountaineers. Climb as many summits as possible traveling on foot down the length of New Zealand's longest glacier.

You can choose to walk out, or fly out at the end of the trip.
