Wanaka is one of the most popular places on South Island. The most luring factor is scenery: the lake and surrounding it the Southern Alps.
One of the most popular tracks is Mt Iron Track, which offers from its top a panoramic view of 360 degrees. Unlike Roys Peak Track this track if for everyone. Mt Iron Track does not require lots of physical fitness and it is reasonably short. The loop takes only 1,5 hour. To get to the track’s start we don’t need a car, we can walk there from Wanaka town center.
On the top of this post glacier 250 meters high hill we can admire the view of the nearest: Clutha River, Cardrona Valley, Cromwell, Lake Hawea, Lake Wanaka, the Southern Alps with closest Mt Roy and Mt Aspiring National Park.
