Mt Aspiring National Park

Lake Wanaka is the gateway to Mt Aspiring National Park, one of the world's most spectacular alpine regions.

The World Heritage Mt Aspiring National Park, stretches from the dense rainforests of Fiordland, across braided river valleys and alpine meadows, to the heavily glaciated Southern Alps with some of the most spectacular pristine wilderness areas anywhere.  
The pinnacle of the park is Mount Aspiring "The Matterhorn of the South", rising to 3027m. Mount Aspiring has attracted and inspired climbers, hikers and photographers for years, and is now one of New Zealand 's most sought after climbing peaks. Great blue ice hanging glaciers, ice and water falls, sheer rock faces, mountain tarns, and native beech forest are part of its beauty.

You don't have to be a mountaineer to enjoy the delights of the park (we can arrange a world-class local guide to accompany you to the top). Many gentle walking tracks meander through its open valleys or you can experience the Mount Aspiring Magic by helicopter or plane.
