The Cook Connection

The Cook Connection runs a daily bus service from Tekapo and Twizel to Mt Cook and back. Join us on our journeys through the Mackenzie Basin to visit the Aoraki Mt Cook National Park, as we show you some of the great sights that this part of New Zealand has to offer.

Our drivers are knowledgeable locals with a love of the area and a desire to share that with you. We want you to go away knowing a little bit more about it and having enjoyed it to the utmost.
