After exploring Queenstown for a few days, we took off on a side trip to Wanaka. Only a short bus ride from Queenstown, Wanaka is a popular holiday spot for New Zealander’s, and also is the gateway to Mount Aspiring National Park. We woke up early on our first full day there and took a shuttle to go explore the park. We chose to go on the Rob Roy Track; a route that leads through beech tree forests, alpine lakes, waterfalls, and glaciers.
We spent the rest of our time in Wanaka relaxing and enjoying the beach there, taking a break from our hikes. Next, heading back to Queenstown for a couple days before we fly over to Australia.
