Lakeshore, Forest and Bird - Private Tour
Immerse yourself in native vegetation, bird life, history and scenic views, all while being isolated from the busy township of Queenstown.
This half-day walk is an easy stroll, through a unique microclimate where plants are protected from the elements so species are more prevalent than elsewhere. Native birds are readily seen and heard. You’ll be introduced to an array of edible and medicinal plants used by Māori and European settlers.
The walk begins in native shrub and beech forest, and the track leads down through the forest to the edge of Lake Wakatipu. Marvel at the great views, looking out through the trees and over the water to the mountains beyond. Move at a leisurely pace through native beech forest, stopping for morning or afternoon tea on the lakeshore to admire the views of The Remarkables and Cecil Peak across the lake.
Head back through native forest along the lakefront to your transport bound for Queenstown.
