After we already walked from riverview via Outlet to Wanaka we also walked up the Mount iron track. We had the best ever 360 round view and it is just above the city. Absolutely beautiful walk and view.

Loved hiking Mount Iron! Great views! You definitely need to wear athletic shoes or hiking boots. My mom, who is in her 60's, was able to hike it. We loved the views from the top!

Lovely loop track in Wanaka, only 90mins, dog friendly and great views. Not suitable for bike or buggys

Hi, As in the previous answer - go out of Wanaka and park up on the left hand side of the road - no problems re parking. Go through the gate which is marked - towards the signed trail. You can go up one side and down the... More
