The Southern Alps is a spectacular mountain range extending along much of the length of New Zealand's South Island. The often snow capped peaks offer amazing vistas all year round.
Mount Cook is the tallest peak in the mountain range which includes over 3000 glaciers including the Tasman Glacier which is over 29 kilometres in length. The range is also home to a number of alpine lakes, ski resorts and winter villages including Wanaka and the incredible Queenstown.
Activities in and around the alps include bushwalking, skiing, hiking, bungee jumping, jet boat rides, wine tasting and scenic drives and flights.
