Wilderness Experiences

Mount Aspiring National Park, Lake Wanaka
05, May 2010
Mount Aspiring National Park, the third largest in New Zealand, stretches from the dense rainforests of Fiordland, across braided river valleys and alpine meadows to the glaciated Southern Alps. Below the snow line is a myriad of walking tracks winding their way through open valleys, native beech forests and alpine meadows with stunning views of hanging glaciers and waterfalls and even the opportunity for a close encounter with the friendly kea (native alpine parrot). 

Full day suggestions:
Half day suggestions:
  • One of the best ways to appreciate the scenery is from the air on a scenic flight
  • If you want to land on the snow then try a scenic helicopter flight
  • For a short walk into the Park, try the Blue Pools Walk at Makarora
Overnight suggestions:
  • Walk in to Mt Aspiring Hut and stay overnight 
  • For the best round circuit tramp in the Park, try the Gillespie Pass Circuit 
  • Sit under the stars and admire the Southern Hemispheres night sky
