Mt Aspiring National Park Hiking

True wilderness hiking in New Zealand. Based in the Mt Aspiring National Park near Queenstown & Wanaka, these 3 - 8 day guided Mt Aspiring National Park Hiking tours are NZ’s wildest walks! From NZ hardest guided treks & glacier hiking to wilderness walking trips suitable for the whole family.

If you have previously hiked & enjoyed the NZ Great Walks or you just want to get away from the crowds on the well known Mt Aspiring National Park Hiking trails, then you’re ready to venture into the New Zealand backcountry with experienced trekking & mountain guides. The Mt Aspiring National Park is a World Heritage Area encompassing the highly glaciated Southern Alps & the majestic Mt Aspiring, known as the “Matterhorn of the South”. With deep forested valleys & crystal clear streams & waterfalls, these guided Mt Aspiring National Park Hiking trips access true wilderness areas - many with no defined hiking tracks or bridges.

In winter ( July - Oct), multi-day guided snowshoeing trips allow you to explore NZ’s snowbound peaks. Staying in private alpine huts, the scenery is spectacular with expansive views to Lake Wanaka and the Southern Alps beyond.

While larger groups can be catered for, this collection of New Zealand Mt Aspiring Wilderness hiking tours specialises in small groups of 4 or 5 people. The value offered on these hikes does not lie in luxury accommodation & food, but rather the knowledge & skills of our highly trained trekking & professional mountain guides to keep you safe in some of NZ’s most remote hiking regions and challenging trekking routes.
