You need to do this. Mount Cook Lake Tekapo & Tasman Glacier (small Group Tour Including Lunch)
May 2021 • Solo
5 individual travellers from Australia made the most of the NZ travel bubble today. We made an early exit from Christchurch in a comfy vehicle, driven and guided by Anujk, our destination Mt Cook and the glacier.
High hopes and great expectations timed with imposing clouds and rain changed what we ultimately saw but we were not disappointed!
What I experienced today was a sense of my small-tiny-self in the midst of greatness and majestic landform. Some of the most dramatic and foreboding landscape I’ve ever had the privilege to stand in. The clouds moved in and the rain drove with erratic wind but we completed our walks to capture treasured photos of this untamed NZ alpine geography.
Beautifully organised with attention to detail this trip was truly remarkable. Lake Tekapo, the Church of the Good Shepard and Lake Pukaki, 2 of several well timed stops along the way. Thank you Anujk from NZSI Tours and Travel.

Mt Cook Village and its surround's is the most beautiful place I have visited in New Zealand. Its simply breath taking. Great accommodation options, great walks and access. Drive in is amazing and the Hooker Valley and Tasman walks are easy and brilliant.

Amazing mountain and tracks. Really enjoyable place. Stay at The Hermitage Hotel if you can. There are wonderful really easy walks here to cater for all age groups and abilities. Well marked tracks and just a beautiful environment!

Beautiful area, gorgeous views all around. The Hermitage Hotel has plenty to see and do inside if it is raining. Nice visitor center in the Hermitage, and interesting interpretive area and gift shop inside the National Park Visitor Center down the road from the Hermitage.

Stunning scenery

Beautiful scenery on the drive in and even better the closer we got to the village! Lots of options for walks to suit different fitness levels. Had lunch at the Hermitage café as was the only one open the day we went (Monday). The visitor centre was informative and well set out. Definitely worth diverting off the track if you are heading through the Mackenzie country to experience the wonder of Mt Cook.

Love Aoraki Mt Cook.

Walked Hooker Valley track! Amazing! Breathtaking views.

Ice Bergs, Glaciers, lakes and avalanches above us!! Incredible experience even in very cold, rainy conditions. Well worth the walk.

Spectacular Alpine Scenery and Walks at the End of a Breathtaking Drive
Mar 2020
It's well worth the time to drive to Aoraki/Mt. Cook from Christchurch or Queenstown. The views from the National Park Visitors Centre in Mt. Cook Village are outstanding. If you're looking for walks of 30-45 minutes return, I'd suggest taking the Hooker Valley Road and then walking to Kea Point Lookout over Mueller Lake and the Tasman Valley Road with a walk to Blue Lakes and Tasman Lake overlook. The former is a relatively easy walk. The latter has more than 400 landscape-timber stairs to climb, so it's a little steep. There are much longer trails also. The views on the drive into Mt. Cook Village along Lake Pukaki will require frequent stops for photos. Be careful when pulling off and back onto the road, because other drivers may be watching the scenery more than other traffic.
