Meet your Guide

Ian McAlpine will be your senior guide

Mount Taranaki Guided Tours is managed by Ian McAlpine, an experienced mountaineer who has completed over 1,700 ascents of Mount Taranaki.

"My name is Ian McAlpine, welcome to Mt Egmont National Park. I'll be your Guide while you are with us in the bush or up on the alpine slopes. Where-ever you're from, whatever your background and whatever your fitness level, you'll  leave here with strong memories and stories to tell.

I believe that life is for living and I know we'll have a great time whether we're strolling through bush tracks, abseiling down a waterfall or climbing to the top of our beautiful Mount Taranaki.

Those of us who are fortunate enough to call Taranaki home have a strong connection with our maunga, our mountain, and I'd love to share our wonderful landscape with you."

Taranaki's official Mountain Guide

Ian has extensive experience on the New Zealand Alps and has climbed in Nepal, India and Antarctica. He is an Official Guide for Mt Taranaki/Egmont, and has been a Department of Conservation Guiding concessionaire since 1992.

Guiding is about local knowledge, good judgment and knowing the risks when exploring the back country. Mostly though it's about enjoying the people who come from everywhere to discover what this incredible mountain has to offer.
