Most of the park's alpine areas lie over the Southern Alps. Glacier and high alpine adventures are popular but suitable only for experienced trampers/mountaineers with the appropriate equipment. Mountaineering, ice climbing, rock climbing and abseiling are possible within the area.

Brown and rainbow trout are found in the Matukituki and Makarora area’s rivers.

There are limited opportunities for trout fishing in the mid Rees, and in some tributaries and parts of the Dart River. There is a limited open season from 1 November to 31 May with a bag limit of one fish.

Fishing licences can be obtained from Fish & Game NZ.
