Wanaka is a small town but very classy and charming. The landscape is amazing and the scnenic drive if you come from the north is second to none. If you plan to go skiing, this place is next to the major ski centers.

We did this amazing walk without a guide. We drove our campervan from Wanaka - it's 51km each way with 90% on unsealed road. The last 4km include 9 fords - one was dry on the day we went. The campervan went through the fords with ease.

The walk itself once over the swing bridge is quite steep, but when you catch a glimpse of the glacier it makes it all worth while.

Get there as early as you can as the sun sets behind the glacier, so later in the afternoon it starts to suffer from shade.

What a great day. Chris picked us up from our accommodation and drive us out to Mt Aspiring to start our guided walk. From the first moment we knew we were in for a great day. Chris is a wonderful guide and very knowledgeable about the Wanaka area, the flora and fauna and has lots of alpine experience. We would definitely recommend this walk which is just spectacular but specifically with Chris from Eco Tours.
