The scenery can only be described as awe-inspiring with the track winding up the Hooker Valley through the scared Topuni area. The track crosses several swing bridges, past Alpine lakes,streams and glaciers at the base of Aoraki/Mt Cook a peak over 3000m in height. The track winds up the alpine meadows where you can spot the Mt Cook buttercup/kopukupuku - which is the worlds largest. The track ends with amazing views over the ice filled Hooker Lake. It's said the best time to walk the track is early in the morning to get the first rays on sunshine over the countries tallest peaks.

Very pleased with the friendly service! We picked up the car from Auckland City and dropped the car off at the airport prior departing for Oz. When we dropped the car off we were asked if we filled the car up with petrol, which we didn't. The very friendly lady drove us to the petrol station so we could fill up and then dropped us off to the airport!!!! Nice touch!
