Ultimate Walking Tour in Paradise
From Queenstown our first stop is the Bob’s Cove Nature Walk, a short distance from Queenstown with diverse native vegetation on the lakeshore zone, bustling with native bird life with the Remarkables mountain backdrop.
We continue our drive on one of the most beautiful road journeys to the western end of Lake Wakatipu. You will take a short walk at Bennetts Bluff where the stunning backdrop of Mt Aspiring National park surrounded by snow capped mountains lies before you.
Next stop is Glenorchy the small village at the top of the lake, surrounded by mountains and the gateway to numerous hiking options.
Venturing beyond Glenorchy we cross the Dart River where you can imagine and see where LOTR movie locations were created.
After your picnic lunch we venture to the world acclaimed Routeburn Track, which provides stunning variation in vegetation, birdlife and topography on a moderate fitness trail through gorges and valleys.
Walking through ancient Red Beech forest amidst ferns, lichens and mosses, we follow the Routeburn nature walk.
