From Queenstown: Mount Cook and Hooker Valley Day Trip

1. From Queenstown: Mount Cook and Hooker Valley Day Trip

Visit breathtaking locations in Queenstown as you make your way to Aoraki Mount Cook National Park. Travel with a reliable tour guide who will share stories and rich background knowledge on Queenstown and the Mount Cook area. Start your tour in the stunning city of Queenstown. Drive through the Kawarau Suspension Bridge and marvel at the scenery the Kawarau Gorge has to offer. Stop at the Roaring Meg Lookout to take photos of your stunning view. Then, enter the region of Cromwell, famous for fruits and wine and where you can see huge fields of vines. Next, traverse the majestic Lindis Pass which lies between two valleys against a backdrop of a bright blue sky. This stretch of highway is one of the only three Alpine roads through the otherwise impassable Southern Alps. After taking photos at the top of the pass, drive through the Mackenzie District and visit the township of Omarama. Turning west, you'll enter Aoraki Mount Cook National Park, and Lake Pukaki will emerge in front of you. Proceed to the start of the Hooker Valley Track and depart on a 3-hour self-guided hike with amazing views of Hooker Lake, Hooker Glacier, and Mount Cook. Finish your tour by visiting High Country Salmon as you make your way back to Queenstown.

What people are saying about Omarama

My second time to Mount cook and first time with cheeky kiwi travels. It was an absolutely enjoyable experience and a massive KUDOS to Dan for bringing the energy and making it an absolutely memorable and safe journey. Dans knowledge of the history , geo formation and all the insides tips and tricks around Q town was a highlight not to forget his sense of humour and high level of engagement with every passenger has to be applauded. Dan is an asset to the travel firm and has the personality and knowledge that goes way beyond just your average kiwi tour guide. Dan was extremely helpful and passionate about his job which made us customers feel great. Thanks again Dan for making it such a great trip. Meghan

I love this tour because the group is very small (only 5 of us). Ride in a spacious mini bus. Pick up timing was punctual. Tour guide is knowledgeable and friendly, brought us to several places with magnificent view. He is also very good at taking nice portrait photos.

John was an excellent guy with a good sense of humour and knowledgeable about the area. It was a great trip and highly recommend it to everyone.

We enjoyed the trip, from start to finish. It was a bit exhausting with all walking but it was really worth it.

가이드님이 매우 친절하며 긴 시간임에도 지루하지 않고 재밌는 하루였습니다. 다시한번 감사드립니다
