ITINERARY

Day One:

Arrive at The Great Glenorchy Alpine Base Camp and get settled in. You’ll meet your guide who will brief you in and check your gear. We have a licensed wood-fired restaurant ‘Base Camp Food Over Fire’, sauna, cosy mountaineer’s huts — everything you might need for a good night’s sleep ahead of tomorrow’s adventure.


Day Two:

Enjoy breakfast at Base Camp, then meet your guide to be transferred to the heli pad for a scenic transfer to your first camp, which will be your base for the summit attempt. You’ll be in your guide’s expert hands from this point on, and how this day goes will differ based on your ability, you might summit on this day or you might be learning some new technical skills ahead of tomorrow’s summit attempt.


Day Three:

Today you’ll either have a summit attempt or be lining up for your second summit on another peak. After a day of climbing, you’ll be heli lifted back to Glenorchy to be transferred to Base Camp for Drinks and Dinner at our popular licensed restaurant.


Day Four:

Take your time checking out in the morning, transfers to Queenstown Airport are available if required.

FITNESS

You will need to be in good shape. We recommend at least 6 weeks of regular walks carrying a 10-15kg backpack. If your hiking boots are new, breaking them in during this training period is recommended to save discomfort in the field.
