Discover dramatic alpine landscapes, sparkling glaciers, towering waterfalls and sheer mountain peaks

Be transported to another world on this full day hike to Rob Roy Glacier in Mount Aspiring National Park, accompanied by your highly-trained personal guide.

Begin your adventure with a scenic drive over the spectacular Crown Range through Cardrona Valley, Lake Wanaka, Matukituki Valley and into Mount Aspiring National Park. Sit back and enjoy constantly evolving landscapes through rugged gorges and vast alpine plains from 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.

Begin your hiking adventure at Raspberry Flats, crossing a swing bridge over the West Matukituki River before a steady climb up through a small gorge alongside Rob Roy stream. You will wander through ancient beech forests and catch glimpses of Rob Roy Glacier as the dense forest clears.

Enjoy cascading waterfalls and the thriving under storey of ferns and mosses as the forest gives way to alpine vegetation and spectacular views of the hanging glaciers beneath Rob Roy. Take a break here to soak in the grandeur and tranquillity of this pristine environment before turning back towards Wanaka.

On the way home, visit the quaint lakeside township of Wanaka and stroll along the waterfront to the famous ‘Wanaka tree’ before returning to Queenstown.

Great Day (Queenstown Wine and Cardrona Distillery Tour)

Our family of four booked a wine tour with Lee in late December 2019. Lee was extremely flexible and responsive to our group - his kind and friendly demeanor made the tour seem more like a day out with a friend rather than a tour. The tour (ie Lee) was full of interesting information, laughs and friendly exchange coupled with excellent locations to visit - the day was excellent from start to finish. Thank you, Lee!!1

Tour of a Lifetime! (Untouched back country heli tour

My husband and I did the "Untouched Heli and Hike Tour" and it was absolutely the highlight of our entire trip. The crew was is top notch, which made the experience even better. Highly recommend any tour which will take your to the Middle Earth Waterfalls, this by far was the most amazing place / landscape i have ever seen. You got chills walking through this area! It was out of this world! Thanks again Lee for the amazing tour! If we are ever in Queenstown again, I know we'll be in touch!

Amazing trip to Milford Sound

Steve was a fantastic host and driver. Every part of the trip to Milford ran to time. Steves timing was impeccable resulting in crowd free stops at spectacular stops along the way. The drive included very informative commentary about features along the way as well as interesting history and modern interruptions related to NZ. The lunch provided was delicious. I would recommend alpine luxury tours to anyone wanting the personal touch to a tour whilst being kept informed along the way and have a bit of a laugh.
