6 Nights: Sunday 28 February - Saturday 6 March 2021
This Wanaka-based walking adventure will take you on some of the best trails in the Mt Aspiring National Park region. You will only carry a day pack while exploring glaciers, climbing to stunning viewpoints, wandering through native beech forest and walking alongside dazzling blue glacial rivers and crystal clear alpine lakes.
In the evenings you will return to the comfort of the Edgewater resort, right on the lakeside in Wanaka where you can enjoy the stylish shops and vibrant local cafés and restaurants.
One of the highlights will be the ‘Siberia experience’ where you will fly into Siberia valley on a scenic flight and then walk and jet boat out through New Zealand’s most spectacular alpine environment on an adventure like no other!
A second jet boat/walk combination will take you up the Makarora River to access the Blue Young track where you will hike to the stunning blue pools.
Please contact Calder & Lawson Tours if you are interested in a single occupancy place.
