About the tours:
Aoraki-Mt Cook, Tasman Glacier & Alpine Centre Scenic Day Tour - Sir Edmund Hillary Alpine Centre
The tour includes admission into the Sir Edmund Hillary Alpine Centre which contains a 3D theatre, Museum, Hillary Gallery, and digital dome Planetarium. This is both educational and really entertaining whereby you can explore the history of the Mount Cook region through spectacular 2D & 3D experiences in the special theatre available with Japanese and Mandarin headphone translations. There are also displays showcasing transport, climbing, and of course one of the world’s greatest explorers - pioneer Sir Edmund Hillary. Floor to ceiling mountain views can be enjoyed from the café and bar, and the adjoining Hermitage.
Full day tour includes delicious lunch at an iconic mountain location
Scenery on your journey from Christchurch is absolutely jaw-dropping: across the picturesque patchwork of the Canterbury Plains, then travelling into New Zealand's spectacular southern alps alongside Lake Pukaki, and finally entering into Te Whipounamu UNESCO World Heritage Area and the Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park containing New Zealand’s highest peak. You will also traverse "middle earth" - places used to film "Lord of the Rings" – before arriving at the famous Hermitage Hotel where you will enjoy the included delicious buffet lunch prior to engaging in the afternoon’s activities.
Included side trip to the Tasman Glacier
The Tasman Glacier is a side trip involving a short journey in the Maossie bus into the Tasman Valley. It may be necessary once there to do a small amount of walking to get the best vantage points for photography. Otherwise, you can elect to remain behind and spend more time at the Sir Edmund Hillary Alpine Centre, or browse the Retail Centre at The Hermitage, stroll around the Mt Cook Village, or visit the Department of Conservation Visitor Centre (an attraction itself featuring Aoraki mountain views, artwork collections, interpretation exhibits and other facilities), before being picked up later for return journey to Christchurch.
