Glenorchy And Paradise Explorer Tour

About Trip:

On your tour, visit numerous scenic locations and learn about Glenorchy and it’s Maori history. Included in this tour is time in the quaint township of Glenorchy to check out the local sites, wharf, shops and hidden local gems. After that you will continue on to beautiful Paradise, stunning Diamond Lake and stop off at a stunning bush location where Lord of The Rings was filmed. Why not pose as a Lord of the Rings character while you’re there!

On this entertaining and informative half day tour you will travel in complete luxury in our brand new Mercedes vans. They offer unparalleled comfort and are fully equipped with all the mod cons you could possibly need, including the latest Wherewolf Ipad technology and our unique on board videos. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the stunning scenery and secret spots our local local guides will show you.


Glenorchy sits at the northern tip of Lake Wakatipu, along a stunningly beautiful stretch of road that runs from Queenstown to the (aptly-named) rural settlement of Paradise further north. Instead of trying to negotiate these unfamiliar (and sometimes dangerous) country roads on your own, get a driver who knows the region on this half-day drive. Spend some time exploring Glenorchy’s shops and cafes, and take advantage of some remarkable alpine photo ops.
