Overview

An extraordinary overnight experience awaits at Plateau Hut. If you’re looking for a trip to one of classic alpine locations in New Zealand and ‘easy’ adventure on the mountains, the Plateau Hut Overnight with Glacier Dome Trek is the perfect trip.

Expect a modern New Zealand alpine hut to welcome your stay, and with your professional guide leading the way, look forward to the excitement of seeing ‘big mountain’ terrain carved by the movement of glaciers.

Attached to a rope, safely trek across the glacier as you make your way up to the summit of 2,452-metre Glacier Dome. Clad in snow, Glacier Dome is a non-technical peak that gets you right on the flanks of Aoraki Mount Cook itself.

Highlights

  • Stay overnight at one of the most spectacular alpine huts in NZ
  • Trek across a glacier
  • Ascend a peak using ice axe and crampons/snowshoes
  • Transport to and from your hut aboard scenic flights
  • Enjoy a hearty evening meal & breakfast prepared by your guide

Timing Your Trip

You can visit Plateau Hut anytime of the year. The peak climbing season runs from December to early January.

The hut buzzes with activity during this period and it can be noisy during the early morning hours.

It’s up to you whether to enjoy the ‘full’ alpine experience; if you wish to skip the crowds, we suggest avoiding booking in December through mid-January.
