At the end, you are rewarded with a big piece of floating ice. On the way, you get to see some buttercups flowers.

Hooker Valley Track: Walking and tramping in Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park

Difficulty: 80 m over 5 km
One of the most popular walks in the park, the track leads up the Hooker valley towards Aoraki/Mount Cook. It passes close to the Alpine Memorial (a great viewpoint) and Freda’s Rock before coming to the viewing point of the Mueller Glacier and the first swing bridge.

Cross the Hooker River here and carry on to the second swing bridge. Look out for many different wildflowers along the way, including celmisia and the Mount Cook buttercup/kōpukupuku.

The track from the first swing bridge to the second travels between old moraine ridges and humps. Past the second bridge, the vegetation changes to more open tussock and a wider valley floor. A third swing bridge leads to the East Hooker and the source of the Hooker River. The track ends at the glacier lake, where there are amazing views to be had of Aoraki/Mount Cook, Hooker Glacier and the Southern Alps/Kā Tiritiri o te Moana.

Return the same way, enjoying more views down valley and across to the Sealy Range.

Getting there
Start from White Horse Hill Campground and carpark at the end of Hooker Valley Road.
