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, start the tour off with pick up from your Queenstown accommodation in one of our premium vehicles. Travel in comfort and style in a Mercedes van fully equipped with panoramic windows for superior viewing with complimentary wifi and bottled water so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the stunning scenery.

Visit 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. Enjoy 3.5 hours (approx.) in Mt Cook Village. Take this time to enjoy one of the many optional activities or walk available in the area.
