John Travolta famously said of Glenorchy, ‘The views are literally breathtaking, this is where God lives.’
The area around Glenorchy is called Paradise, some say after the multi-coloured paradise duck, but also simply because of its beauty. Paradise has been used as a backdrop for movies such as Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Prince Caspian, Vertical Limit and Wolverine and the television series Top of the Lake.
Glenorchy provides a tranquil environment for those who simply want to enjoy the brisk mountain air. There is a range of outdoor activities to suit every kind of corporate guest.
Out in the middle of Lake Wakatipu are three lonely-looking, uninhabited
islands called Pig, Tree and Pigeon. The islands can be
reached by guided kayak trips, or you can paddle your own way.
In Glenorchy and its surrounds, it’s easy to let the imagination run riot. Everything
about the place has a feeling of being pristine and unspoiled.
