A Great Sights vehicle will pick you up from your accommodation to commence a half day tour to Mount Cook. This tour takes you from Christchurch, through diverse farmland to Lake Tekapo, where you can view the solitary Church of the Good Shepherd and take in the sights of the spectacular Southern Alps mountain range. The tour continues along the Tasman River before arriving at Mt Cook Village, located at the foot of New Zealand's tallest mountain, Aoraki / Mount Cook. Tour concludes at approximately 1.00pm, at Mt Cook Village.
The magnificent Southern Alps stretch from Nelson in the north down to Fiordland in the south. In this maze of mountains, Mount Cook stands highest. Awarded 'World Heritage' status in recognition of its qualities and rare beauty, the Mount Cook National Park covers an area of nearly 7,000 hectares of majestic alpine scenery with more than one third being in permanent snow and glacial ice. The park contains 22 of the 27 peaks over 3,000 metres in New Zealand and provides a wonderland for walkers, skiers and mountaineers. A popular way to experience the grandeur of this mountain area is with a helicopter or fixed wing scenic flight.
