From Raspberry Creek carpark, a 15 minute valley walk brings you gently to the foot of the ascent through the entry of a long swing bridge.

From here, the walk gradually climbs alongside a powerful gorge linked with waterfalls and proud rock cliffs. Blue glacier water forms the walks soundtrack, with the exception of New Zealand bird song.

The 10km walk (3-4 hours) breaks from the heavy native forestry and brings exceptional views of the glacier. Whether in rain or sun, this track will provide you with a raw insight to New Zealand landscape.

How to get there

An hours drive west of Wanaka, following directions along the lake and into the valley towards Raspberry Creek carpark.
