Guests will take on a three hour section of the track, stopping at a secluded beach on the shores of Lake Manapouri for a picnic lunch provided by Cabot Lodge and possibly a dip in the lake for those brave enough! Guests will return home after their day of exploring Fiordland's unique wilderness to canapés, drinks and their final evening meal, showcasing the best of the region's farm to plate cuisine.
