Green & Gold
Nomad Safaris 4WD + Dart River Jet Safaris
If there is one tour that captures the diversity and richness of the mountains and valleys surrounding Queenstown, it is undoubtedly Green & Gold.
Your scenic journey starts by travelling beyond Glenorchy and far up the Dart River into the lush green forests and snow-capped mountains of Te Wahipounamu World Heritage area, where the early Maori traded the highly valued Greenstone with obsidian from the North Island tribes.
Then follow in the footsteps of the European pioneers on their quest for gold in locations around the Wakatipu Basin. Explore the golden hills of the high country and marvel at scenery used to illustrate Middle-earth in the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies.
