Mount Cook Magic in 3D

Mount Cook Magic is an inspiring 3D cinematic experience unlike any other. Filmed at Mount Cook for the Sir Edmund Hillary Alpine Centre, this is the next best thing to climbing Mount Cook, flying across the Southern Alps or skiing the Tasman Glacier - in fact, you'll think you're actually doing it all.

Mount Cook Magic begins with the Ngai Tahu Maori legend of the creation of New Zealand, the Southern Alps and mighty Aoraki Mount Cook...

...Then soar with the Keas, high above the mountains and glaciers and accompany a climbing expedition to New Zealand's highest summits...

...Ski the Tasman Glacier, explore crevasse fields, climb a frozen waterfall and feel the exhilaration of being part of nature shaping this dynamic environment.

Now available with Japanese and Mandarin headphone translations.
