Meet in our office in Franz Josef Glacier, (or we can pick you up from your hotel accommodation in the Franz Josef township). Enjoy the beautiful drive past rivers and Lake Mapourika, to the village of Okarito. Approx 30 min drive. We may stop along the way to show you specific interests we think you may enjoy ie historic or natural highlights.
Visit the historic wharf shed of Okarito and talk with your guide about the historic whaling, flax and gold mining industries this village used to provide.
Depending on the day and your requirements, we may go out to the beach to get a good view of the mountains for you to photograph.
We then begin the Okarito Trig Walk, a 1.5 approx walk up to a lookout to get those 360 spectacular views.
Head back to our office in Franz Josef in our minivan (or transfer back to your accommodation in Franz Josef township).
