On this Mt Cook Day Tour from Queenstown, you will experience the unique alpine landscapes of the Southern Alps as you travel with us from Queenstown through Mackenzie Country and into Aoraki Mount Cook National Park, home to snow-capped mountains, impressive glaciers, and New Zealand’s highest peak, Aoraki Mt Cook (‘Cloud Piercer’).

Departing from Queenstown at 7.30 am, we will enjoy visiting iconic central South Island locations such as Cromwell, Lindis Pass, Omarama, Twizel, and the bright turquoise waters of Lake Pukaki before entering Aoraki Mount Cook National Park.
