New Zealand Ascents

Ascents of New Zealand's famous peaks are coveted as highlights in any climber's career

Although the peaks in the Southern Alps of New Zealand are only just over 3000m in height, they are similar in ruggedness and valley to summit altitude gains to the higher peaks of the Himalaya.

The Alps are wild and pristine with varied and diverse climbing challenges - sufficient to provide any climber with countless years of worthy objectives.

Adventure Consultants is based in the small alpine town of Wanaka, nestled beneath these rugged mountains. We have close access to many different mountain areas that enable us to optimise the climbing opportunities around the weather systems and conditions.

The mountain environment here is often demanding. We are faced with challenging weather conditions, heavily glaciated mountains and steep alpine faces. Yet it is from this setting that great climbers are forged and where our internationally recognised guiding operation has its roots.

At Adventure Consultants, we relish these mountains and this is reflected in the innovative and passionate way that we operate our personalised climbing and instructional programmes.
