Among its most striking features are Mitre Peak, rising 1,692 m above the sound, the Elephant at 1,517 m and resembling an elephant’s's head, and Lion Mountain, 1,302 m, in the shape of a crouching lion. Lush rain forests cling precariously to these cliffs, while seals, penguins and dolphins populate the water.

Your journey will take you past breathtaking sights, from high mountain peaks to the blue lakes of Wakatipu, Dunstan, Wanaka and Hawea.
