Lake Tekapo & Mt Cook tour



At 3754 metres tall, Mt Cook is New Zealand's highest mountain. It is a spectacular sight, surrounded by lakes and glaciers. A visit to Mt Cook National Park is sure to be one of the highlights of your time in New Zealand.

During this tour, we spend one night at Lake Tekapo Village, famous for the pretty Church of the Good Shepherd. Our second night is spent on a classic New Zealand farm in the mountains. This is really cool! We meet the farmer and learn about the farming life.

Along the way we take some short walks and plenty of scenic photo stops - impress your friends with awesome photos! This weekend tour is a perfect chance to meet new friends while having a totally unique Kiwi experience.

Price: $285pp. Includes 2 nights backpacker accommodation, 2 breakfasts, 1 dinner.
