Distance & Duration

318km/198mi, 4hr


Make your way up the scenic Otago Coast, stopping by the Moeraki Boulders, then continuing to the surprise gem of Oamaru, with its attractive historic buildings. Turn inland to the drier country of central Otago, coming to the small town of Omarama. Although small, Omarama is famous as one of the best sites in the world for glider flights, and once hosted the world championships. Head north from Omarama through the desert-like country of southern Canterbury, and visit the alpine Salmon farm near the town of Twizel (the highest-altitude salmon on Earth). Continue to the striking blue of Lake Pukaki. The route continues to Mt Cook township, where you can take a walk to soak up the best views of Mt Cook itself - New Zealand's highest peak.
