The 44km drive from Queenstown to Glenorchy on a winding, lakeside road makes for a lovely day trip – as described in our Glenorchy & Paradise Day Trip.

It can also be combined with a visit to the inspiring Mt Aspiring National Park; home of the Routeburn Track and the lovely shorter, flater walk to Lake Sylvan.
