ITINERARY

Day One:

Arrive at Queenstown Airport where you will be met by your expert guide and transferred to The Great Glenorchy Alpine Base Camp in one of our Land Rover Defenders for check-in, expedition briefings and dinner in our popular licensed wood fired restaurant ‘Base Camp Food Over Fire’ ahead of a night in one of our cosy mountaineer’s huts.

Day Two:

Up early, breakfast, gear check and your provisions will be added to your packs. You will be transferred to the nearby heli port with your mountain guide. From here you will be flown into the alpine zone where your off track mountain expedition will begin. There will be a meaningful focus on skills development along the way. Navigation, route planning, correct use of technical equipment among many other key skills — all designed to inform confidence building and a new kind of parent child bond. You will be pack camping tonight.

Day Three:

Break camp, breakfast and a summit attempt. Your guide will have a good expert handle on an appropriate summit and the route that will best suit your troupe. You will all be involved in the planning. An extremely momentous day. You will pack camp again tonight.

Day Four:

Break camp, breakfast and the kids will plan and lead your hike descending from the high alpine zone, through the Beech Forest and mossy forests to a river system where you will be met by one of our Land Rover Defender 4x4s and transferred back to Base Camp. Sauna, showers, freshen up and debrief with your guide ahead of a pretty special dinner at Base Camp Food Over Fire. Tonight you will all sleep well in your mountaineer’s hut.

Day Five:

Breakfast and check out. You will be transferred to Queenstown Airport to meet your return flight. Pre arrival you will receive gear and pack lists and there will be at least one face to face Google Meet call with the head of our alpine operations. All technical equipment will be provided.

FITNESS

In the weeks ahead of your trip, we recommend taking regular walks with your pack. If your hiking boots are new, breaking them in during this period is recommended to save discomfort in the field.
