Mount Cook - or Aoraki to Maori - is New Zealand's highest peak. Dominating the Southern Alps, Mount Cook has become a symbol of our nationhood. This soaring icon has been the subject of thousands of paintings, photographs and postcards.
Climbed for the first time on Christmas Day 1895 by Tom Fyfe, George Graham and Jack Clarke, Mount Cook's unpredictable moods continue to attract and captivate thousands of visitors each year.
Celebrate that first climb with Wild South and join Sir Edmund Hillary, Rob Hall and others to recreate a century of exploration and high adventure and, through the magic of film, gaze on some of the world's most stunning alpine scenery.
