Roys Peak Track, Wanaka

#1 of 9 in Trails in Wanaka
See one of New Zealand's geological wonders at Roys Peak Track in the Southern Alps. Head up the steep track starting at Raspberry Creek parking lot to witness the glacier as it dramatically tumbles over a cliff face in Mount Aspiring National Park. The well-maintained walkway to reach the glacier cuts through the surrounding alpine scenery and includes safety ropes lining the route. However, the trail can become slippery in inclement weather and access to the route is not permitted in particularly adverse conditions.

  • An ascent that seems endless because from the parking lot, you see where you go, and the path is not the easiest, but when we reach the top, our suffering feels is rewarded by this incredible view, and do not forget to make the last half an hour to allow you to enjoy the 360-plus view
