The Dart River

Journey with us to an ancient landscape, undisturbed for thousands of years. 

The spectacular landscapes in the Dart River Valley are nothing short of awe-inspiring, with snow-capped mountain peaks, crystal clear waterways and lush ancient native beech forests.

The braided Dart River (or Te Awa Whakatipu) flows for 60km from the Southern Alps and the Dart Glacier in the heart of Mount Aspiring National Park, until it reaches the northern tip of Lake Whakatipu near Glenorchy. Towered by mountain ranges on either side, the Dart River Valley offers stunning panoramic views at every turn.
