Wye Creek Overnight Guided Walk

A spectacularly scenic introduction to a range of NZ trekking terrain. This overnight experience is a scenic introduction to the astounding alpine high country of the Southern Alps.

Traversing glacial carved valleys with towering cliffs, alpine lakes, the highest peaks of the Remarkables Range tower above, sweeping panoramic views abound as you cross the Wye Saddle before plunging downward through a steep-sided valley renowned for its ecologically sensitive fauna, rock climbing, and ice climbing.
