The Ultimate tour package is an opportunity to experience the full range of adventure tourism and eco travels that Wanaka has to offer. The tour is one full day and a second half day to be taken in the morning or afternoon, with pick you up and drop off at your accommodation on both days.
The first day will take us on a leisurely boat cruise up the perfect waters of Lake Wanaka to the idyllic island of Mou Waho where we enjoy a pleasant stroll around the island and to a secret of the great walks of Wanaka – a lake hidden on the island. Along the way we will watch and listen for the variety of indigenous bird life. On Mou Waho there will also be the chance, as part of your eco travels, to help the natural surroundings and plant a native tree.
After the relaxing return boat cruise to Wanaka town, we will take lunch in one of the waterfronts esteemed eateries and then set off up the Matukituki valley for our next adventure. A four wheel drive tour around an authentic New Zealand high country station. Making our way through alpine meadows and ancient forests, passing sites of significant European heritage and relaxing by a waterfall. It is the best way to get to know the country in comfort and style.
The second day brings more adventure with a jet boat tour along the Matukituki River, traveling up to 80kph along the braided river system to where the boat can take us no further. Here we will leap into a helicopter to rise above the valley for astounding panoramas of Mt Aspiring National Parks and a soft landing on a glacier. Return to the moss covered forest floor for guided wilderness walk A perfect day, well spent.
