EXPEDITION DESCRIPTION

ITINERARY

 

 

At 8:30am we meet at the One Mile Car Park on Queenstown’s Lake Esplanade.

 

After a safety talk and explanation on radio and convoy procedures we set off to explore a very private high country sheep station and its huge vistas. Plenty of time is allowed to soak in the mountains, river, and raw scenery. We head out to a remote back country hut for lunch before returning through the station, allowing time for a hands on go at gold panning or to just chill out.

Once we are back through the sheep station boundary gate, opportunities exist for an afternoon of lake fishing or a gentle 1 1/2 hour walk around an alpine lake.
