Informative adventure
My wife and I had a great adventure with Cliff. We explored a waterfall then took the path less trodden through the bush. The weather cleared and we were able to get a good view of the glacier. Then to top it off a cup of tea sitting on the stones of the river bed. Cliff shared with us plenty of stories and interesting information about the area. We highly recommend this tour.

It was a very early start for the drive out - but we were rewarded with the most beautiful sunrise over the lake.
