LAKE CRUISE + 4WD TOUR + HELICOPTER FLIGHT. The complete Wanaka experience, an adventure of monumental proportions. Cruise across Lake Wanaka, 4WD up rugged Mt. Burke, relax with a gourmet picnic and get whisked away by helicopter for a scenic flight you will never forget.
Hold your breath because this journey will take it away!
The complete Wanaka experience brings you the best Wanaka has to offer with views from the lake, land and air looking over remote islands and the National Park. From start to finish we are off the beaten path, no people, truly remote, truly stunning.
Your trip starts at the Wanaka Marina from where you will cruise up Lake Wanaka towards the head of Stevenson’s arm with tremendous views of glacier carved mountains, a constantly changing vista of steep walls and alpine peaks. We cruise past Stevenson’s Island to our landing point at the foot of Mt Burke.
Boarding our 4×4 Vehicle we climb above the lake, your view expands until all of Lake Wanaka lays before you in a stunning panorama of crystal clear blue water and the alpine peaks of Mount Aspiring National Park.
Take some time to enjoy the solitude and enjoy the best view in Wanaka! Your guide will give you an insight into the history of the farm station and the geology of the alps and some of the stories of the early settlers who sought farm land, gold and a better life here in the mountains of New Zealand. This while you enjoy your gourmet picnic.
After the picnic the adrenaline is set to rise again as your helicopter arrives for your 40 minute scenic flight over the deep valleys, braided rivers and steep glaciated peaks of the Mt. Aspiring National Park. A mountain landing gives you the chance to soak it all in with photo opportunities to treasure before your return to Wanaka.
An adventure of monumental proportions, the complete and ultimate Wanaka experience.
