Southern Alps

6 Days

All year




  • Enjoy a 6-day climb to the summit of Mount Aspiring in New Zealand.
  • Spend your nights in comfortable mountain huts.
  • Marvel at the gorgeous Southern Alps from the peak's summit.


Known as the Matterhorn of the South, Mount Aspiring (3,033m) in the Southern Alps is an amazing peak. And, on this 6-day adventure, you will get to make your way up the great mountain to its beautiful summit.

There are several routes that can be taken to the pinnacle of Mount Aspiring. Each route offers its own unique journey, and many of the routes involve climbing on alpine rock, snow and ice. However, based on your skill level, weather conditions and personal preferences, we will choose the best route for you.

The approach to the mountain will take place by way of the grassy flats of the Matukituki Valley. We will make our way through beech forest and then go up to the Bevan Col and go across the Bonar Glacier. Thus providing you with an amazing adventure just getting to Mount Aspiring. From there, we will climb to the summit, where you can bask in beautiful views of the New Zealand landscape. Moreover, you will get to spend your nights in comfortable mountain huts.

Participants on this trip should be in good physical condition. You should also have prior climbing experience.

If you are looking for a great climbing adventure in New Zealand, you can’t do much better than scaling Mount Aspiring. To join me on this trip, please send a request.

I also offer a great, full day ski touring trip in New Zealand at Wanaka that you can enjoy here.
