Tititea/Mount Aspiring Guided Ascent

Known as the "Matterhorn of the South" due to its asthetic shape, Mount Aspiring stands alone as the only 3000m peak outside of Mount Cook National Park. The mountain offers a selection of routes on alpine rock, snow and ice and can be climbed with or without helicopter access - this is a rare opportunity to climb a 3000m peak purely under your own power. The foot approach to the mountain via the grassy flats of the Matukituki Valley, through beech forest then on rock up to Bevan Col and across the Bonar Glacier, is a rewarding adventure in itself!

Which is best for you

Flying in to Bevan Col allows you to maximise your time in the mountains. Flights are not included in the price, as costs vary according to aircraft occupancy. It is often possible to combine flights with other groups heading in to and out of the mountains to significantly reduce flight costs.

As there is no guarantee of being able to fly (due to weather) and no obligation to fly, we like to be able to pass on any potential savings directly to our clients.

Price per flight in NZ$ (the cost is split equally amongst participants)
