Mountaineering

Our Mountain Guides specialize in the iconic mountains of the Southern Lakes region, Aspiring National Park and Mt Cook National Park.

We provide guided mountain expeditions from Queenstown and Wanaka, generally at the Beginner or Intermediate level with peaks up to 3000m and in simple glaciated terrain.

This makes us perfect for the strong alpine trekker, introductory or intermediate mountaineer and for those seeking to tick off the majority of iconic New Zealand mountain peaks not found in the 3000m+ high guiding zone.

A great way to consolidate or gain mountain experience with fully facilitated guided experiences, add to your peak bagging list, or prepare for a high guided mountain experience.

GRAND TRAVERSE OF SINGLE & DOUBLE CONE

The Grand Traverse is an iconic, classic single day adventure, with awesome views and knife edge exposure. Arguably one of the finest single day alpine adventures in New Zealand! It is a very serious expedition, and as such must be combined with a prior day of training and assessment. Please contact us for more information

 

WHO IS THIS FOR:

  • Summer. The Grand Traverse is suitable for those with some previous rock climbing and/or mountaineering experience or extensive hiking experience. Discuss your experience with us when you book, and you might be surprised! We can also add an additional training day to get you ready!
  • Winter. Winter conditions mean that the full Grand Traverse can be difficult to achieve. Please contact us to discuss your experience and current conditions. A winter traverse requires better clothing, warmer boots, and excellent fitness.

PRICES

The Grand Traverse is a single day traverse, we may ask to see a logbook of your experience or have an evening session working on some key skills needed for the day.
