    Highlights

    Mou Waho Island Cruise and Walk
    Lying close to the centre of Lake Wanaka is the magical Mou Waho Island Nature Reserve – a unique glacial remnant of the last ice age. After a short cruise to the island, our experienced guide will take you along the walking track to the serene Arethusa pool near the summit. Keep an eye out for the rare Buff Weka (a bird which is extinct on the mainland) and enjoy magnificent panoramic views of the Southern Alps dropping dramatically into Lake Wanaka. Includes morning / afternoon tea.

    Tekapo Star Gazing Tour and Hot Pool Entry
    A two-hour experience, the first half of the tour includes a guided tour of the southern night sky with a unique combination of astronomy and stories passed down from the ancestors of the first people of Aotearoa, followed by a soak in the hot pool. In good weather, explore the planets, galaxies and stars that are most prominent for the time of year with commentary and high-powered telescopes.
