Paradise Valley is located nearly 70kms from Queenstown just past Glenorchy. On this very picturesque photography tour we travel from Queenstown on Glenorchy road along Lake Wakatipu stopping at Bennetts Bluff which looks up the lake & over to Pig and Pigeon Island.
Stopping at various points along the way to Glenorchy we then stop in the town that heads Lake Wakatipu. After photographing the famous Glenorchy Boatshed and lakefront we head down the Paradise Valley, approximately 20km past Glenorchy. Paradise Valley is flanked by magnificent mountains and is teaming with native birds within the Beech tree forests. The forest trees are covered in moss which makes for amazing macro photography and the sun shimmers through the Beech tree branches.
If you would like an earlier or later pickup time - 7am or 3pm (summer) instead, please ask for availability.
