You will visit remote mountain ranges with deep valleys carved by ice, experiencing the diversity of the Southern Alps with their extensive ice plateaus, the temperate rainforests of Fiordland and Milford Sound and the wild and rugged West Coast. See the pinnacle of the National Park, Mt Aspiring before returning to the Matukituki Valley.
What You'll Get
