Wanaka Day Tour – Queenstown

Wanaka

Historically used by Maori as a pathway to greenstone sites and later by goldminers for accommodation close to Cardrona claims, today Wanaka has branded itself as a lifestyle reserve; rich in family adventures, eco-tours, recreational trails and nearby skifields, it is surrounded by huge mountains and massive glaciers. We will lead you to the Reflection Tree, which grows within the lake. It is obsessively photographed across every season, and you will see why.

Then will have one hour of free time to wander Wanaka at your whim, maybe you'll look around the shops, sit and have an icecream by the lake, or go for a walk along the lake path? The choice is yours. We recommend choosing an easy lunch option from one of the nearby cafes and taking advantage of the views.

Wanaka is famous for its slightly weird and wacky attractions so be sure to give these a go:

  • Puzzling World - The Illusion Rooms, Puzzle Centre and Maze will leave you baffled!
  • National Transport and Toy Museum - visit the largest collection of toys in the Southern Hemisphere.
  • Warbirds & Wheels - classic cars, warbirds and wearable creations.
  • Wanaka Lavender Farm - enjoy a breathtaking walk lavender fields & meet the resident animals
  • #thatwanakatree - NZ's most photographed tree

 

The Crown Range

As we head back towards Queenstown, we will take the Crown Range home. As New Zealand's highest sealed road, the Crown Range is usually covered in snow in winter and boasts some incredible viewing platforms. You will step out and soak these up and grab a photo or three.

 

Cardrona

But before you do...we still have one famous stop to make. Built in 1863 to service gold prospectors, offering them accommodation, and a place to stop and seek refreshment, is Cardrona Hotel. It is one of New Zealand's oldest pubs, and possibly the most well-known (it has been much photographed internationally). Pop in and explore, and we'll shout you a beer or soft drink to enjoy in the beer garden or by the fire. You've worked for it.

 

Mt.Cook and Lake Tekap

Fringed by snow grass plains, opalescent glacial lakes, and snow-capped peaks, Mount Cook rises 12,218 feet (3,724 m) over the South Island. Spend a day journeying across the rugged landscape of Mount Cook National Park and exploring the icy mass of the Tasman Glacier.

Ride across the Canterbury Plains, the foothills of the Southern Alps, and the vast, scrubby expanse of the desert-like Mackenzie Basin.

Make your way to Lake Tekapo, a shimmering, turquoise swath of iridescent water that seems to glow amid the surrounding brush. Walk along the shore and snap a photo of the historic stone Church of the Good Shepherd before continuing up along the banks of Lake Pukaki, an opaque jewel framed by the Southern Alps.

Take in the rocky winterscape as you enter Mount Cook National Park, you have some free time to explore at your leisure, trekking along nature trails or perhaps opting to take a helicopter flight over the glacial terrain. Walk to the viewpoint of the Tasman Glacier to see Lake Tasman. This iceberg-dotted body of water has just formed in recent decades as the glacier has retreated.

As your alpine afternoon comes to a close, begin your return ride to Christchurch, stopping mid-drive for late afternoon where you can opt to enjoy tea in the charming high country township of Fairlie.
