Lake McIvor 2 Day Walk

Grade:
Easy to Moderate

After a stunning flight across Lake Te Anau we land on Lake McIvor itself. Once the plane has left us alone in this remote, pristine environment, we commence our walk along the Lake McIvor edge, through native forest containing clusters of 1000+ year old beech trees and moss gardens. There are no marked tracks, it's all deer trails following an underground river that has its source up at Lake McIvor.

The terrain is flat and easy walking to begin then a gradual uphill walk through mainly Alpine tussock to our camping spot in a remote valley by an Alpine lake. After dinner we walk to an adjacent clearing approx 20 mins away in the hope of spotting a few deer and other wildlife including numerous native birds and the possibility of seeing the camp's resident Kiwi.

Next day we commence our descent through green, luscious, native bush, down towards Lake Te Anau where our return
boat awaits.
