New Zealand is a hiker's paradise with so many great walks and diverse tramping tracks to choose from. For trekkers who have hiked many of the well-known hiking trails like the Milford, Routeburn or Kepler Tracks, Alpine Recreation offers guided mountain hikes, which take you off-track and above the bush-line to places you would not venture on your own. The New Zealand wilderness can be unforgiving for those not familiar with our quick-changing weather, our rugged, unstable terrain and challenging snow conditions. Our mountain guides give you the opportunity to experience the spectacular alpine areas of Aoraki Mount Cook National Park and Lake Tekapo and to interact with an adventure expert, practised in helping you to have fun in the outdoors. Enjoy our clean, warm and non-crowded private huts on the Tekapo Trek and Aoraki Mount Cook or Ball Pass Treks!
If you want to come hiking in winter (July-September) then please refer to our snowshoe hikes.
