Mātukituki Valley Walk

Explore Wānaka’s best kept secret, the breathtaking Mātukituki Valley.  From the comfort of our 4WD to walking in pure silence surrounded by the Southern Alps and the majestic Rob Roy Glacier, a  day to remember…


Travelling Mt Aspiring Road alongside Lake Wānaka offers spectacular views of iconic Mt Aspiring- Tititea (3033m). Entering the glacial carved Mātukituki Valley view the gin-clear Mātukituki River with towering snow-capped Mt Avalanche above you. Pass huge farms of Red Deer, Angus Cattle and roaming sheep providing spectacular photo opportunities. Learn about the forces of nature that continue to shape this jaw-dropping landscape. Enjoy a leisurely walk to Wishbone Falls (20mins return) and refreshments before heading off-road onto Mt Aspiring Station to enjoy refreshments beneath the mighty Rob Roy Glacier. A spectacular nature walk alongside the Mātukituki River awaits (up to 10 kms) followed by a picnic lunch before returning to Wānaka.
