Get ready for panoramic views of Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu and the Southern Alps from the get-go!

Glacial lake | LotR filming location | Native bush | Panoramic views

Crossing the hidden Wye Creek basin, the path will lead you past multiple tarns, native beech forest and a natural waterfall cascading down into Lake Wakatipu.

After a steep climb, a lookout offers stunning views of the Remarkables face and Lake Alta marks the end of this rewarding day trip - a true representation of our Otago wild!

The glacial lake is a Lord of the Rings Filming location (Dimrill Dale) and the perfect photo spot with its clear water and Queenstown's highest peaks in the background...
