Sitting beside Lake Wakatipu with the snowcapped peaks of the Southern Alps in the background, Glenorchy is a haven for lovers of the great outdoors.

Glenorchy is completely overshadowed by the world-class nature that surrounds it. Not that anyone is complaining. Base yourself in this friendly little town to tramp through awesome national parks or take a horseback ride to discover many iconic filming locations from the LOTR and Narnia movies. And then there is the Dart River. If jet boating is too speedy for you, try kayaking.
