Begin your adventure with a picturesque drive south of Queenstown, winding your way alongside the turquoise shores of Lake Wakatipu and the towering Remarkables mountain range. Sit back and enjoy stunning vistas as we climb the Devil’s Staircase Road towards Kingston and Staircase Creek.
Your hike begins on the breathtaking Loch Linnhe Station, an 11,000ha sheep and cattle farm that spans from the Hector Range to the Nevis River. We’ve partnered with Loch Linnhe Station to provide this unique and exclusive hiking experience; allowing you the opportunity to wander through spectacular alpine landscapes, discover cascading waterfalls and learn about the rich history of the station and its local flora and fauna, all without crowds of tourists competing for photos.
Following in the footsteps of early settlers, we make our way towards the cascading Staircase Creek, where your local guide describes how ingenious gold miners used the waterway to carry water for their equipment in the valley.
We then make our way back along the trail and depart for Gibbston wine region, known as the ‘Valley of the Vines’, nestled between rugged schist mountains and the rocky Kawarau River gorge. Here we delight in world-class pinot noir at some of the best wineries and cellar doors in the region.
We’re lucky to have some of the best gourmet dining, award-winning vineyards and charming local cafés in New Zealand. We can tailor lunch options to suit every taste.
An honest, comforting and social winery lunch experience with individual and shared plate options, Mora is the perfect choice for those looking for hand-crafted cuisine that’s made from scratch with a focus on quality, taste and seasonality (bookings recommended).
