  • Detailed Location Information

     

    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 ski fields, 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 you 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.

    Arrowtown
    Your day ends with a guided driving tour of historic Arrowtown; a site swarmed firstly by European gold prospectors in the 1860's, then by 5000 Chinese who were invited to try their luck among the leftovers! After your driving tour you will have plenty of free time to walk among the tiny restored cottages of their settlement and wander down the main street of this exquisite little town with its charm of historic buildings that will make you feel like you walked onto a movie set. If you are feeling peckish try a local favorite snack "the Southland Cheese Roll" or maybe homemade ice cream or even taste chocolate fudge. Arrowtown has something for everyone.
