Explore Mount Cook, a picturesque village tucked at the base of Aoraki/Mount Cook, New Zealand’s highest mountain. This dramatic alpine landscape is bestowed with spectacular glacier lakes, rivers, meadows, and valleys that entertain horse treks, dinghy cruises, fishing trips, 4×4 drives, and scenic flights with glacier landings. The numerous trails, from the Hooker Valley track to the Tasman Valley lookout and the trek to Mueller Hut are a treat for both beginner hikers and seasoned mountaineers. Accessible via the scenic State Highway 80, majestic snow capped mountain vistas of the Southern Alps beckon. The Sir Edmund Hillary Alpine Center offers a glimpse into the region while the historic Old Mountaineers Lodge provides locally sourced, organic, and free-range produce. As part of the Aoraki International Dark Sky Reserve, Mount Cook also offers wonderful opportunities to marvel at the constellations!
