Mt Cook Region

Mt Cook Region attractions and Mt Cook day tours include Lord of the Rings Tours at Twizel, where you can discover Gondor, the setting for some of the scenes in the "Return of the Kings". On the 2 hour tour you can learn about movie making in the spectacular setting of Middle Earth. For those stopping a night in the Mount Cook region, the Twilight Tour is a great option. You can see the sun set over the Pellenor Fields, whilst sipping on a glass of Lord of the Rings low alcohol beer or a glass of wine!


At Mount Cook you can see the Tasman Glacier, New Zealand's longest glacier. Take a heli-hike on to the white ice, and walk on the glacier whilst taking in some of the Southern Alps most spectacular mountain vistas.
