Summer Trekking & Climbing
Guides are already booking up fast for the coming summer season - get in quick to avoid disappointment!
Alpine Recreation Canterbury Ltd was founded in 1981 by UIAGM-qualified Gottlieb Braun-Elwert, who pioneered the Symphony on Skis route, the Jubilee Fitzgerald-Copland Pass route, and achieved many notable climbing feats, including a winter ascent of Cerro Fitzroy, ascents of all New Zealand's 3000m peaks in one winter and ski traverses of the Patagonian Icecap and Alaska's Denali. One of Gottlieb's most rewarding guided ascents was with double-amputee Phil Doole on Aoraki Mount Cook. His safety research into short-roping and snow anchors continues to influence current climbing practices.
New Zealand's former Prime Minister, Helen Clark, now head of the United Nations Development Programme, continues to come back year after year to do trips with Alpine Recreation, especially ski touring.
