Glenorchy is the true capital of the great outdoors.
There are more than 19 different day walks in the area and several famous extended walks, such as the Routeburn Track and Greenstone-Caples Tracks, start nearby.
The scenery in the area is spectacular and if walking is not your thing, 4WD companies can help you experience the area in depth by taking you to some of the out of the way places that you only discover with inside knowledge and access to private land. Trips are available with a focus on the Lord of the Rings sites, gold mining, abandoned township and general scenery tours.
