The nature of the terrain on Mount John dictates a certain level of fitness. You need to be confident walking 100 meters on a gravel incline and be able to climb a couple of steps in the dark.

The Summit Experience is a weather dependent activity. If weather conditions prevent us from taking you outdoors (e.g. cloud cover or inclement weather) you’ll be¬†offered alternate options including¬†learning about our southern skies from our purpose-built technological and interactive venue.
