The Waitaki River and beautiful Waitaki, Aviemore, and Benmore Lakes will guide you as you travel up the Waitaki Valley. Along the way, several charming towns such as Duntroon, Kurow and Otematata give you a chance to stretch your legs and explore – maybe even take a jetboat ride.
Ōmarama is recognisable for its giant merino sheep statue. Merino sheep have been farmed here since 1858. The area’s unique geography also makes it a magnet for gliding enthusiasts. Ōmarama is home to the famous Northwest Arch, a thermal that can take glider pilots to 10,000 metres. Spend the evening, soaking up the clear night sky from a relaxing hot tub.
Add a night in Ashburton before heading on to Ōmarama.
