    Mount Alfred
    Stop: 7 hours -
    You will meet with your guide in Glenorchy and he will take you to the start of one of New Zealand's most amazing hikes. It is a private area so you will not come across any other people. The views will be breathtaking, right over Lake Wakatipu, the Dart Valley and Earnslaw Glacier with its eternal snow. The ascend is through the native beech forest, and tussock grasslands. Once at the summit we will spend considerable time to admire & photograph the views and to explore further. Your locally born guide will tell you so much about the region's flora, fauna & history.
