Join us for a magical journey to Glenorchy and beyond. Located on the north shores of Lake Wakatipu, this small settlement is full of character and charm, both of the local and Middle Earth variety. Take in some of the most famous and scenic sights of the region, tuck into a classic Kiwi morning tea and be entertained by local stories and film history from your expert local guide.
Visit all of the best local and secret spots. Get a photo with the famous Glenorchy red shed, pretend to be a Hobbit in Paradise, take in the snow-capped views over the Dart and Rees Rivers and Diamond Lake, and hear stories of the early Maori settlers. This is a truly iconic New Zealand destination, combining all of the top things which make the South Island what it is.
Travel in style in luxury Mercedes vans with unique onboard videos and complimentary water and Wi-Fi. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the stunning scenery and secret local sights.
The 4 hour Glenorchy & Paradise Explorer Tour departs Queenstown daily at 9am and returns at 1pm.
For a full day of fun and decadence why not combine a morning Glenorchy and Paradise Tour with a Twilight Wine and Craft Beer tour or experience more of Queenstown’s incredible scenery with a boat cruise around Lake Wakatipu on Southern Discoveries’ ‘Spirit of Queenstown’. Depart at 1.00pm for a 1 hour 30 minute cruise and enjoy the sights with a glass of award-winning Central Otago wine and cheeseboard to share (additional costs apply and subject to availability).
