Timed to coincide after the school holidays, come join one Girls on the Road Again’s ultimate luxury tours as Lesley and Jo McCarroll are heading to breathtaking Glenorchy on the banks of Lake Wakatipu, a place which has captured the imaginations and hearts of travellers for 150 years. Set snugly between two soaring mountain ranges, a glacier-topped peak and the river-fed headwaters of Lake Wakatipu, Glenorchy is a unique destination.
Staying at eco retreat Camp Glenorchy, these four days are for foodies, adventurers and photographers.
