GreatSights Mount Cook Day Tour - Queenstown Return

Take a day trip from Queenstown to Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park, home to New Zealand's highest mountain.

Leaving Queenstown, we travel north through the historic gold mining region of the rugged Kawarau River Gorge and past Cromwell, famed for its fruit-growing. Skirting the shores of Lake Dunstan, we cross the Lindis Pass to Omarama for morning tea (own expense). Continue through the rugged high country landscape of the Mackenzie Basin to arrive at Mount Cook Village, where you can gaze up at the 3,724 metre-high mountain Aoraki / Mount Cook.

Enjoy the views from the iconic Hermitage Hotel as you eat a delicious lunch (optional extra), or explore the village and its scenic surrounds. Following our lunch stop, we depart back to Queenstown, 

All our coaches are fully equipped with air conditioning, free WiFi, reclining seats and Multilingual Headsets available in Mandarin, Spanish and Japanese.
