Discover South Island - Mount Cook national park New Zealand

Mount Cook national park is a must-see. Located in the western part of South Island, it holds the country's highest peak (Mount Cook towers at an altitude of 3,754 m). The landscape is made up of stony valleys, framed by permanently snow-capped ridges. These mountains also hold glaciers, in particular Tasman's : as the access road is quite awkward, preferably catch a mini-bus leaving from Mount Cook Village. Another option is to fly over the park by plane or helicopter. The departure points are Mount Cook Village or Glentaner Park.

    The snow and difference in altitude mean that it's not that easy to travel around here, but the virgin scenery is definitely worth the trip!
