Know More about this tour

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!
