Half Day Hooker Valley Guided Walk

Half Day Hooker Valley Guided Walk

Ultimate Hikes Aoraki/Mt Cook Day Walks is a guided tour of the Hooker Valley, providing breathtaking views of some of New Zealand's highest and most enthralling peaks. Our knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides will tell you all about the unique flora and fauna of the region and the local history as you trek through this amazing landscape.

From The Hermitage Hotel we head to the White Horse Hill camping ground. The half day option enjoys a stunning 7km return trek along the well-maintained track. The journey takes in the poignant Alpine Memorial and passes over the turbulent Hooker River twice by swingbridge to unsurpassed vistas of Aoraki Mount Cook's south face and the surrounding glaciers and mountains.

This is a unique experience and one which will not be forgotten. You will land at around 1,200 metres above sea level and spend up to 2 hours in the mountains. This is a guided interpretative trek on the “white ice”. As your crampons bite into the ice, you will trek on gentle undulating terrain, below the highest peaks of the Southern Alps (Aoraki and Mount Tasman).

The full day guided walk option begins and concludes at the Hermitage Hotel. The walk takes the same route as the half day option but continues to the terminal lake of the Hooker Glacier, a 14km return trek.
