Our full day loop trip takes you on an all encompassing Central Otago adventure.  You will depart Queenstown through the world's' most southern wine region, passing Gibbston 'the valley of the vines', which has played a large part in putting NZ Pinot Noir on the international wine map. We will move on through the gorge to Bannockburn for morning tea with an optional walk in the historic slucings.  You will have the opportunity to pop into Old Cromwell and sample some local delights (seasonally dependant) before making your way to the furthest point on the loop: Wanaka; a beautiful town with unspoiled views of mountains and lakes and a natural atmosphere to match. 

Here, we will visit the 'most iconic tree in NZ', #thatwanakatree prior to arrival at Hook- a unique Lake to Plate dining experience for a quick fish (chinook salmon) for your lunch! 

We will depart Wanaka with the options of a winery or distillery visit before journeying through the spectacular Cardrona Valley and descending from the Crown Range (the highest main road in NZ) to Arrowtown off road. 

Your guide will ensure that your activities on this trip are tailored to your preferences- please chat to our team at the time of booking.
