Lose yourself in the natural beauty and awe-inspiring scenery of one of New Zealand’s most iconic regions. Your local personal guide will take you on a full-day exploration across the infamous Crown Range to picturesque Lake Wanaka and the Cardrona Valley.

Begin your adventure with a scenic drive over the spectacular Crown Range towards Cardrona. Sit back and enjoy constantly evolving landscapes through rugged gorges and vast alpine plains from the comfort of your own Land Rover Discovery or Mercedes van. Never miss a photo opportunity with the flexibility to stop, jump out of the car and breathe in crisp mountain air wherever and whenever you like.


We stop to take in iconic panoramic views across the valley to The Remarkables and Lake Wakatipu before visiting New Zealand’s most photographed building, the history-laden Cardrona Hotel.  The journey continues to the gorgeous lakeside town of Wanaka and on to Makarora (summer months). Here we take a short walk through mature silver beech and podocarp forest to marvel at the crystal clear Blue Pools.

Following lunch, we visit the famous ‘Wanaka tree’ and walk along the picturesque lakefront. You may choose to indulge in a wine tasting at Rippon vineyard or perhaps visit the Wanaka Lavender Farm to stroll amongst 10 acres of breathtaking lavender fields.

Our local personal guides love to tailor each tour to suit your interests, tastes and abilities. Get in touch to customise your tour and make your Queenstown adventure one to remember.
