A mountaineering adventure traversing the Mount Cook Range

Trek across high mountain passes surrounded by New Zealand’s highest peaks and longest glacier! Enjoy two nights in the private Caroline Hut, savouring the fabulous views of the 2000m high Caroline Face of Mount Cook, New Zealand’s highest ice face. Relax in its wonderful setting on the Ball Ridge, high above the Tasman Glacier, and be awed by the ice avalanches rumbling down Mount Cook.

Climb Kaitiaki Peak (2222m) to enjoy the panoramic views of the surrounding Southern Alps, including close up views of the Hillary Ridge and South Face of Aoraki Mount Cook. Explore the Ball Glacier with your guide on the way to crossing Ball Pass (2121m) before the long and steep descent into the Hooker Valley.

The Ball Pass Crossing combines an opportunity to learn basic mountaineering skills and summit a peak with the hard, physically demanding challenge of a high alpine crossing.
