Mountain Guiding in New Zealand

The summer mountain guiding season in the Southern Alps of New Zealand is rapidly coming closer. Mid November sees our first Mt Cook-Aoraki ascents trip for chief guide Gaz. Instruction courses will again be part of his schedule and next month starts with a guides training week.

Closer to home, from our base or yours while in Wanaka, guided trekking excursions are again available with Iris and the native and exotic flora has started its display of budding and flowering with daily new magic popping out:
