Experience the beauty of New Zealand's highest peak on foot wandering the easy Hooker Valley Track, enjoy a birds eye view of the area from the air or take to the surrounding turquoise waters by boat. While you are here, don't miss a visit to the Mt John Observatory where you will witness the clear and vast starlit skies of the world's largest Dark Sky Reserve. Day or night, from up close to views across the water, this mountain takes our top spot for South Island experiences.
