We undertake trips in a huge variety of places throughout the Southern Alps (we have a concession/permit for more than 50 locations). For those of you willing to do some real exploring, many of those locations have hardly been visited by anyone, even our guides.
When you book a guided journey with us, you’re signing up for a particular style and difficulty of trip over an agreed range of dates. We’ll always have a ‘Plan A’ regarding where we go, but we’ll always need a Plan B (and Plan C…). Depending on the weather forecast a few days before the start, we may decide to go somewhere quite different if it avoids terrible weather. We want to provide you with a challenging trip, but also an enjoyable and safe one, so we need to be flexible. Fortunately, we have so many locations up our sleeve that we’re likely to find somewhere suitable for almost any South Island-wide weather forecast.
