One of the most popular walks in Aoraki/Mt Cook National Park. Pass through Hooker Valley and walk beside the Hooker River.

Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park is a rugged land of ice and rock. Walking one of the tracks is the best way to experience the untouched land.  Picturesque icebergs, glaciers and majestic mountains will have you reaching for your camera at every turn.

The full Hooker Valley walk takes 4 hours return. Start at the Visitor Centre or White Horse Hill campground/carpark (at the end of Hooker Valley Rd off State Highway 80). The track leads up the Hooker Valley, along the Hooker River and ends at the glacier lake, where there are amazing views of Aoraki/Mount Cook on a clear day.

The Hooker Valley track is mostly flat and well formed but some sections are  rocky or muddy, and there are three swing bridges to cross. Be prepared for changeable weather conditions.
