Canterbury – Southland

7 Days 8 Nights

DAY 6:From Arrowtown, we follow the Kawarau River which is the confluence of the Shotover and Arrow Rivers and runs into the mighty Clutha. From here we climb up over Duffers Saddle, to the East of the Remarkable Range and trek through to the isolated Nevis Valley.  There are multiple crossings of the Nevis River as we make our way South taking in the local gold mining history before entering Lorne Peak Station and climbing out over the Hector Mountains to  Tenants Peak (5000ft). From the dizzying heights of the Hector Mountains we get a spectacular view out over Lake Wakatipu, the Garvie Mountains, the Old Man Range and the Mataura River, famous for its trout fishing.”
