Heli – Mountaineering – Hike – Camp
Pricing from (TBC)
This stunning location is a world away and far from some of the well worn tracks in the area and possibly one of the most beautiful locations for miles. Access is limited to a small number of adventurers in this part of The UNESCO South West New Zealand World Heritage Area, it’s special, and so you are likely to be some of a very small number of people to have ever been here.
There is a wide variety of terrain to suit a range of individual fitness and skills including a wonderful hike via streams and tarns to Death Valley itself. The camping site is exceptional and immediately beside the logical spot to land the heli. We set up a heavy canvas camp for the two nights with wood fired tent heaters, great stretchers/mattress combos and we provide hearty food for the duration of the adventure (among other modest comforts).
