Mt Aspiring National Park - Te Wahipounamu World Heritage Area

Striking landforms, from soaring mountains to tranquil river flats, make exploring Mt Aspiring National Park wilderness an unforgettable experience. Climb, tramp, ski or just take in the spectacle… it’s your choice.

You don’t have to be a mountaineer to appreciate this incredible monument to nature. You don’t even need to be a tramper, but you really do need to see how effortlessly Mt Aspiring National Park earns its status as part of a World Heritage Area.

Mt Aspiring itself is the magnificent 3,027m centerpiece of a spectacle that sparkles with glaciers, thunders with waterfalls, glistens with braided rivers and beckons with hectares of lush native beech.

Whether you choose a seat in a helicopter or jetboat, a stout stick and walking boots or a set of crampons, you’ll find Mt Aspiring National Park is the sort of place they invented the word ‘awesome’ for.  


Breathe deep. You’ll need it.
