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).
