Visit Glenorchy, New Zealand

Glenorchy is dramatically situated at the head of Lake Wakatipu and is completely encircled by the towering peaks of the Southern Alps. You get the impression this remote township is still coming to terms with the recently surfaced road that now links it with Queenstown and the outside world.

Glenorchy serves as the base for the world-famous jet-boat trip ‘Dart River Safari’, which heads deep in to Mount Aspiring National Park, a World Heritage Area, and also has its own small airline offering scenic flights up the dramatic valleys in to Fiordland.
