Glenorchy, the Gateway to Paradise nestles on the shores of Lake Wakatipu in the South Island of New Zealand. Just a 45 minute drive away from Queenstown, this small township of around 300 residents is surrounded by majestic mountains and stunning views, it’s the jewel of the Wakatipu area.
Another 20 minute drive north brings you to the Mount Aspiring National Park, home of the famous Routeburn Track, as well as other stunning multi day tracks such as the Greenstone/Caples and Rees/Dart. This area also boasts many day walk options within the National Park.
