THE GLENORCHY EXPLORER EXPERIENCE
The Glenorchy Explorer Experience is as much about the journey as it is about the destination. Savour every moment by allowing your driver-guide to take care of the driving and the details.
For a taste of real New Zealand, nothing beats the sleepy settlement of Glenorchy. A small town on the edge of big wilderness.
Breathtaking hardly begins to describe the Glenorchy Road. Winding along the shores of Lake Wakatipu with stunning views at every turn this is a journey best done with an expert at the wheel. You enjoy the scenery while your driver-guide navigates the road and shares intimate knowledge of the area.
The 45-minute journey to Glenorchy is a non-stop barrage of jaw-dropping scenery. After stopping at the best viewpoints, you will arrive in Glenorchy where the schedule can be as relaxed or as busy as you choose

Half way to Glenorchy have your camera ready for a truly spectacular photo stop.
At the head of the lake (and the end of the road) is Glenorchy. A small township immortalised in films like Lord of The Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia. You will see why the moviemakers come here.
Lunch at the GY Café for a taste of local flavours and local characters.
