Wanaka

Queenstown - Arrowtown - Wanaka - Cardrona - Queenstown

Today, visit historic Arrowtown, stunning Wanaka and the world famous Cardrona hotel with a knowledgeable guide. The amazing landscape and scenery will truly be the highlight of your time in Queenstown.

Your day begins in historic Arrowtown; a site swarmed firstly by European gold prospectors in the 1860's, then by 5000 Chinese who were invited to try their luck amongst the leftovers! You'll walk amongst the tiny restored cottages of their settlement and wander down the main street of this exquisite little town with its charm of historic buildings that will make you feel like you walked on to a movie set.

Next up, we'll head to Wanaka. Historically used by Maori as a pathway to greenstone sites and later by goldminers for accommodation close to Cardrona claims, today Wanaka has branded itself as a lifestyle reserve; rich in family adventures, eco-tours, recreational trails and nearby skifields, it is surrounded by huge mountains and massive glaciers. We will lead you to the Reflection Tree, which grows within the lake. It is obsessively photographed across every season, and you will see why.

Then will have one hour of free time to wander Wanaka at your whim, maybe you'll look around the shops, sit and have an icecream by the lake, or go for a walk along the lake path? The choice is yours. We recommend choosing an easy lunch option from one of the nearby cafes and taking advantage of the views.

As we head back towards Queenstown, we will take the Crown Range home. As New Zealand's highest sealed road, the Crown Range is usually covered in snow in winter and boasts some incredible viewing platforms. You will step out and soak these up and grab a photo or three.

But before you do...we still have one famous stop to make. Built in 1863 to service gold prospectors, offering them accommodation, and a place to stop and seek refreshment, is Cardrona Hotel. It is one of New Zealand's oldest pubs, and possibly the most well-known (it has been much photographed internationally). Pop in and explore, and we'll shout you a beer, wine or soft drink to enjoy in the beer garden or by the fire. You've worked for it.
