Glorious Winter in Aoraki Mount Cook

Winter at Glentanner and the Aoraki Mount Cook region is seriously underrated - it's one of our best kept secrets! Many activities are still on offer, accommodation is warm and cosy, the scenery is more splendid and the weather is generally more settled.

We are also located close to many ski fields. So for those visiting the Mackenzie, Wanaka or Queenstown areas for ski holidays, a trip to New Zealand's highest mountain is well worth it!
