The drive to Glenorchy from Queenstown is said to be one of the most beautiful scenic drives in the world and it’s not hard to see why. The road follows the path of Lake Wakatipu and the crystal aqua waters. At the highest, northern most end of the lake is Glenorchy, a small township located just south of the southern alps.
The drive with all of it’s twists and turns was truly stunning. As well as driving it, we were lucky enough to fly over the road in a small plane on our way to Milford Sound which gave us an even better view of this beautiful scenery and Mount Aspiring in the distance.
