Your trip starts at the marina by boating up Lake Wanaka towards the head of Stevensons arm with tremendous views of glacier carved mountains, a constantly changing vista of steep walls and alpine peaks. We cruise past Stevensons Island to our landing point at the foot of Mt Burke.
Boarding our 4×4 Vehicle we climb above the lake, your view expands until all of Lake Wanaka lays before you in a stunning panorama of crystal clear blue water and the alpine peaks of Mount Aspiring National Park.
Take some time to enjoy the solitude and enjoy the best view in Wanaka! Your guide will give you an insight into the history of the farm station and the geology of the alps and some of the stories of the early settlers who sought farm land, gold and a better life here in the mountains of New Zealand.
We have 2 great gourmet picnic choices:
Morning Tea; a fine selection of fruit, slices & muffins accompanied by tea and plunger coffee.
Afternoon Tea; a fine selection of fruit, New Zealand cheese and crackers, accompanied by local Wine. (White, Rose or Red)
Of course we are more than happy to serve wine in the morning and coffee in the afternoon. Or provide a non alcoholic drink. We cater to any dietary requirements and provide a kids picnic as well.
We have daily departures at 9 am and 1 pm, allow 4 hours and dont forget your camera. We have a maximum group size of 5 so you get the full attention of your kiwi guide.
