The headwaters of the Copland lie only eight kilometres to the northwest of Aoraki/Mount Cook in a valley overlooked by the peaks of Mt. Sefton and Mt. La Perouse. A popular tramping track follows the river and leads to the Welcome Flat hot springs. The track leads onto the Copland Pass and the Copland Glacier.
The river lies within the Westland Tai Poutini National Park.
