A diverse and adventurous hike through the sheer mountain wilderness of Mt Aspiring National Park. The route follows a wild tumbling river, leading you from temperate rainforest up to alpine meadows with a stunning backdrop of snow capped mountains and glaciers. Once over the pass a side trip to Lake Crucible (a glacial lake at the foot of Mt Alba) adds to the incredible variety of this trip. At the completion of the hike you are met by a jet boat for a thrilling ride down the Wilkin River and back to civilisation. You stay in a mix of huts and wilderness campsites. Pre-stocked provisions means only your sleeping bag and personal gear need to be carried (no food or tents).
