New Zealand Hiking Tours

South Island Alpine Hiking and Walking Tours

Hiking-in over mountain passes is a very rewarding and worthwhile experience. Options include fully guided or self guided trips.

In some cases, such as the Waiau River trip, there are well-formed Department of Conservation walking tracks, but in other cases, such as the Dennistoun Pass trip, which is very rarely travelled, we are route finding over a high alpine pass where there is permanent snow and ice. Our alpine hiking trips can be very challenging at times, but you will never find a more rewarding experience. A trip of this nature is very special, and especially so when sharing with friends or family.
