Your Day Tour
Your active day begins with a scenic transfer from your accommodation to the head of Lake Wakatipu where your guide will introduce you to the history and landscape of the region. The walk begins in the Mount Aspiring National Park with a gradual ascent through a world of ancient ferns, mosses and beech forest.
The woodland eventually gives way to the rich grassland of the Routeburn Flats, overlooked by cloud-scraping mountains. This becomes the awe-inspiring setting for a delicious kiwi style picnic lunch before returning along the old ‘Greenstone’ trails and old paths of Maori travellers through the sheltered canopy of the valley’s forest.
Around every corner your knowledgeable guide will point out the native and migratory birds, fascinating fauna and flora and provide an insightful history of the region.
