We plan to spend a 1.5 days in the Mount Cook village in early August and I'm trying to figure what we will be able to do. Obviously the lake cruise is out. Can we do the Hooker Valley hike (all 8km) with just good hiking shoes? What about the two Tasman Glacier/Lake viewpoint hikes? What is the drive along the Tasman glacier road like (it's unsealed, isn't it) to the trailheads? Any other nice, doable hikes and/or tours (such as the 4WD tour)?
