Wanaka Private Tour
Duration: Full Day
Inclusions: Hotel transfers, private guide and lunch
Join us as I personally show you the best sights of Wanaka and the region on the Wanaka Private Tour. This morning I’ll pick you up at your hotel and we will drive drive up over the Crown Range towards Cardrona, we’ll stop for an amazing photo shot looking back towards the Remarkables and Lake Wakatipu.
Once we arrive in Cardrona, we will stop for an iconic photo of the Cardrona Hotel which was established in 1863 and is one of New Zealand’s oldest and most iconic hotels and is one of only two remaining buildings from the Cardrona Valley gold rush era.
We will then carry on through Wanaka and just north of Makaroa are the famous, crystal clear Blue Pools where we will take a short walk. The Blue Pools have the most amazing colour from the pure glacier water and are set amongst native beech and podocarp forest.
This afternoon, we will drive back to Wanaka where we can enjoy a picnic lunch by the lake, take photos of that Wanaka tree, visit Rippon vineyard on the lake for a wine tasting and stop at the Wanaka Lavender Farm to experience the tranquility amongst 10 acres of lavender fields before we drive back to Queenstown.
We can also tailor the Wanaka Private Tour to create the perfect day specifically designed for you, your family or group to incorporate your interests.
