Striking landforms, from soaring mountains to tranquil river flats, make exploring Mount Aspiring National Park an unforgettable experience. Climb, tramp, ski or just take in the spectacle… it’s your choice. Whether you choose a seat in a helicopter or jet boat, walking boots or a set of crampons, you'll find the National Park the sort of place they invented the word 'awesome' for. A highlight of any South Island adventure, the 30-minute Blue Pools Walk leads through silver beech/tahina forest and over a swing bridge to a viewing platform overlooking magnificent crystal-clear pools at the mouth of Blue River.
