Travelling through glacial valleys, around towering mountains and stopping off at spectacular vineyards and historic towns along the way, your local guide personally take you on a full day journey through Queenstown, Glenorchy, Paradise and Arrowtown. Discover hidden gems, local secrets and famous movie locations along the way.
Begin your adventure with a spectacular scenic drive to Glenorchy. Rightly recognised as “one of the most beautiful drives in the world”, the road hugs the turquoise shores of Lake Wakatipu. Relax in the comfort of your own private Mercedes vehicle and enjoy the flexibility of stopping wherever and whenever you like for photo opportunities or rest stops.
Visit the iconic Glenorchy shed before arriving in Paradise, one of the most breathtaking destinations in New Zealand. The name says it all, and once you experience the combination of towering peaks, glacial valleys, emerald green braided river and pristine rainforest you’ll feel like you’ve found Heaven on earth.
Heading back along the Glenorchy Road, we can take a leisurely stroll around the beautiful and historic Bob’s Cove before making the journey to Coronet Peak (summer months) to enjoy panoramic views across the region. Your local guide will delve into the rich history and legends of the area against a stunning backdrop.
After lunch we’ll wander through the historic cobblestoned streets of Arrowtown, a charming gold rush township with a vivid history. We’ll explore the old Chinese settlement and spend time browsing local boutiques and shops.
Next we visit the world’s home of bungy, proudly sitting at the gateway to the Gibbston wine region. Perfectly situated among lakes, gorges and mountains, the region is famed for its Pinot Noir and spectacular vineyards. We have the option to visit some top wineries and cellar doors to sample their finest offerings before returning to Queenstown.
We’re lucky to have some of the most outstanding gourmet dining, award-winning vineyards and charming local cafés in New Zealand. Lunch options can be tailored to suit every taste.
