Glenorchy is surrounded by magical snow-capped mountains, stunning lakes and rivers, ancient beech forests and at the edge of Mount Aspiring and Fiordland national parks, the frontier town of Glenorchy has provided the backdrop for many films, including The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings.

Also the drive from Queenstown to Glenorchy is one of the world’s greatest drives, following along the Wakatipu Lake. You will get to enjoy the whole journey as your guide looks after the driving.

Glen will collect you from your hotel long before sunrise, or sunset, and return you once the ideal time for natural light photography has disappeared.

You will need to dress appropriately for all weather conditions on the tour, and remember to bring your camera, tripod and a fully charged battery.
