Treat yourself to a fabulous adventure. Lakeland Explorer scenic group tours are specially designed so that small groups can see and enjoy even more of the beautiful Mackenzie Country.
Visit lakes, historic hydro canals, salmon farms, and more, or join us at night for a stargazing tour and view the magnificent southern skies of the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve.
Tours depart from Twizel and can be customised to suit your group’s interests, time table and other needs. Inquiries are welcomed from groups interested in supported cycle trips and other custom tour requests, including photography tours.
Travel from a unique, historic hydro town through the heart of the Mackenzie High Country. Be entertained by stories of the land, its visitors and settlers as you explore beautiful lakes, hydro canals, power stations, salmon fishing and farming, and more.
This addition to the Three Lakes Mackenzie tour includes the optional extra of a picnic featuring delicious local foods.
The night sky of the Aoraki Mackenzie region has been rightly designated an International Dark Sky Reserve. It is truly magnificent. The stars don’t merely twinkle here – they blaze! Experience the unique and breathtaking glory and learn about our stars, constellations, Maori legends and more.
Warm drinks provided. Wear warm outdoor clothing and footwear.
Lakeland Explorer can also transport groups to Tekapo and Mount Cook Village for stargazing activities in those locations.
