Located in the heart of New Zealand's Alpine country, at 3754 meters, New Zealand's highest peak was named Mt Cook after the British explorer Captain James Cook. Although it encompasses 23 peaks over 3000 meters high Aoraki Mount Cook National Park is very accessible. State Highway 80 leads to Aoraki/Mount Cook Village which is situated beside scenic Lake Pukaki and provides a comfortable base for alpine activities. At Mt Cook Village you can experience life at its best: enjoy safaris, boating on the glacier lakes, horse treks, fishing, scenic flights with snow landings and numerous walks and hikes. During the winter guided ski experiences onto New Zealand's longest glacier, the Tasman, is a popular activity and a unique Mount Cook wedding location! Mountaineers regard the area to be the best climbing region in Australasia.
