The Discover Mount Cook Including Lunch tour will travel north from Queenstown through Kawarau River Gorge which is a historic gold mining region. The first stop will be at Lake Dunstan for morning tea (own expense).
This Great Sights tour will then continue on heading through extremely rugged countryside and into the Mackenzie Basin. The tour will arrive at Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park which features New Zealand's tallest mountain. There is the option for lunch at the Mount Cook Village while enjoying the alpine scenery.
While spending time at Aoraki / Mount Cook there is the option to take a beautiful scenic flight with Mount Cook Ski Planes or Helicopter Line at your own expense. This is an unforgettable experience and popular option.
The same route will be taken for the journey back from Mount Cook to Queenstown. This one day Mount Cook Tour from Great Sights is an excellent way to see this region on your next New Zealand holiday.
