Weaving between mountains and through Lindis Pass we arrived at Lake Pukaki, which was an incredible electric blue. After a quick stop here, we continued on to Mount Cook, also known as Aoraki, meaning the ‘Cloud Piercer’. It wasn’t hard to understand why it was named this as it dominated the distant skyline. The drive in to Mt Cook village was amazing, one of New Zealand’s most iconic roads had us stopping frequently to soak up the view. Once we arrived at the village, the clouds began to roll in and fill the valley. We decided to make our way to the Hooker Valley Track, so we could reach the base of Aoraki. After crossing three swing bridges and walking for an hour and a half we had made it to the Hooker Glacier, which faced us with icebergs; I was absolutely blown away to see icebergs in person, an unforgettable sight.
