Overview

Grab this opportunity to reach the summit of Mount Olivier (1,933 metres) from Mueller Hut where this overnight trek will stay. The glacier-covered peaks of Main Divide flank this incredible location at Mt Cook in New Zealand, making the Mueller Hut Overnight Hike a rewarding trek.

Located below Mount Ollivier, which Sir Edmund Hillary climbed as his first peak, Mueller Hut is one of New Zealand’s more accessible alpine huts.

Taking around 6 hours, the 1,000-metre ascent to the hut is a leisurely paced trip, with enough time to take breaks and photographs. From the hut, the summit of Mount Ollivier takes only 40 minutes to reach.

Guiding Season

In summer, Mueller attracts a sizable hiking crowd as the route is straightforward. We guide from April through October (autumn through spring) when the hut is more peaceful and the route requires mountain knowledge and technical equipment to safely ascend.

Experience and Fitness: Good level of hiking fitness. Able carrying a pack of 10-12 kg for 4 to 6 hours without stopping.
Maximum guide ratio: Up to '4' people per guide
Age restriction: Minimum of '12' years old
