Wine & Food Indulgence

See Aoraki/Mt Cook, Lake Tekapo and Lake Pukaki and experience the unique landscape of the Lindis Pass as we head south to Cromwell.

Located deep in the heart of Central Otago in the valley of Upper Clutha, Cromwell is a special place not to be missed. From rugged to rolling hills, two great rivers and the sparkling pristine waters of Lake Dunstan, the natural beauty of the area is overwhelming.

The Cromwell basin is home to a host of award-winning wineries: enjoy the scenery while enjoying some the world’s finest pinot noir vintages. The area also has a rich heritage past with remnants of goldfields that will take you on a journey of the past. Wander down to the historic Cromwell Heritage Precinct for a selection of boutique shops, art galleries and cosy cafes.

On our way back to Tekapo, we will stop at the Omarama Hot Tubs where you can enjoy a private sauna and soak. A great way to relax after a day of indulgence.
