Hike : Rob Roy Glacier Track

Mount Aspiring National Park – A Walker’s Paradise. A stunning combination of soaring mountains and beautiful river valleys – this World Heritage Area is filled with walking and hiking tracks. Undoubtedly the crown of the National Park is the half-day Rob Roy Glacier Track that reward hikes with spectacular views of Rob Roy Glacier with waterfalls 600ft high.


An hour drive from Wanaka brings you to Raspberry Creek Car Park where the track begins. A short 15-minute walk through the valley is a swing bridge where you cross the river and into the beech forest.

The track climbs steadily through a small gorge along the Rob Roy Stream and at the end, you’re rewarded with the iconic Roy Roy Glacier


The return track is about 10km longs and takes about 4-5 hours.

Initially, we had intended to do the Roys Peak Track. But due to track closure during the lambing season, we opted to do this track instead and we’re so glad we did! The view of the glacier is hugely rewarding and makes you realise just how small you really are.
