Place to Be: Haast Pass Blue Pools

Another gem located in Mt Aspiring National Park – the Blue Pools track is one of Department of Conservation’s highly recommended short walks, so much so that it is often crowded with travelers wanting to admire its beauty on the way to Haast.

The track is easy and suitable for everyone. It’s about 1.5 km return and will take less than an hour. For the best view, cross the swing bridge over Makarora River to admire the pure glacial water. The water is so crystal clear, you can see straight through to the bottom.

If you’re not afraid of the cold and can brave the icy water, bring your swimming gear for a quick refreshing dip!

Top Tip: Take insect repellent. The sandflies that lurk around are annoying!
