Start the day with a walk around picturesque Lake Wakatipu and a delicious breakfast at one of Queenstown’s award-winning cafes.
Following breakfast, soak in the incredible scenery from the water on a thrill-inducing jet boat trip, from above on a scenic flight, or by bike on one of the many local trails.
From Queenstown, follow the road to Te Anau as it winds around the gentle curves of Lake Wakatipu.
The scenery here is stunning - lakeside vistas are framed by the rugged face of a magnificent mountain range appropriately named The Remarkables. Easy rolling countryside soon leads you to the shores of Lake Te Anau, the biggest of the South Island’s many lakes. On the western side, the long arms of the lake disappear into the looming, densely forested Murchison Mountains.
The picturesque township of Te Anau is the main visitor base for exploring Fiordland National Park and the perfect stopover on the way to Milford Sound. Spend a night here and check out the town's many attractions.
