Journey deep into the Southern Alps on a half day sightseeing tour from Queenstown to Mount Cook.

Set off from Queenstown in a luxury coach, enjoying the commentary from your local driver guide as you travel north. Pass through the historic gold mining district of the rugged Kawarau River Gorge and the famous fruit growing region of Cromwell. Skirting the shores of Lake Dunstan, your tour crosses the Lindis Pass into Omarama for morning tea (own expense).

Continue through the rugged high country landscape of the Mackenzie Basin to arrive at Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park, home to Australasia's highest mountain at 3,724 metres. Sit down to a delicious lunch (optional extra) at the Hermitage Hotel in Mount Cook Village, where you can enjoy stunning uninterrupted views of Mount Cook and the other high peaks that make up the Southern Alps. You can also take the chance to see this alpine region from above with a scenic flight (own expense – this flight can be arranged with your driver/guide on the day).

Your tour concludes in Mount Cook village with onward travel options to Christchurch (tour code GS72) or return travel to Queenstown (tour code GS73) - contact us to book these options.

See some of the South Island's most impressive mountain scenery on a one-way day tour to Mount Cook in the Southern Alps.
