Mt Aspiring National Park

Episode: 1
Title: Mt Aspiring National Park
Presenter: Trevor Cochrane & Chrissy Morrissy

World Heritage listed National Park is absolutely stunning.
Chrissy Morrissy and Trevor Cochrane explore Mt Aspiring National park by helicopter, flying over valleys and through thick bush land, up into breathtaking ranges. The night before the team filmed here, there was a late snowfall, and the result is just mesmerizing. In one hour you’ll be taken through the park and see more than you could in a whole lifetime.
Mt Aspiring National park has some of the best walking trails in the world and the Siberian Wilderness trek takes Trevor and Chrissy on some of the most sensational alpine trails in this park. There are flora and fauna here only seen here in New Zealand. Lots of photo taking opportunities here.
The epic adventure ends with an adrenaline-pumping way of getting back – although it took about 3 hours to get to the river, they go back on the river jet boat in a fraction of the time! The jet boat skims along on just 4 inches of water, down two rivers – 50km in just 30 minutes. What a way to experience these pristine river valleys.
