Glenorchy is a true outdoor enthusiast's paradise. Set against a background of native beech forest and towering mountain ranges, Glenorchy’s surrounds are nothing short of awe-inspiring. Activities include jet boating, tramping, fishing, hunting, horse trekking, sky diving, farm tours, 4WD safaris, kayaking, scenic flights and photo safaris.

Glenorchy is the stepping off point to the finest tramping opportunities in New Zealand. The Routeburn Track begins on the south side of the Dart River and the Greenstone-Caples circuit is across the lake. The Rees-Dart Track is the toughest challenge, crossing alpine passes and rough terrain.

Close to town are well-graded walkways that lead to points of interest; the Glenorchy Walkway, Whakaari Conservation Area and Mt Judah, where the remains of scheelite mines can be found.

Glenorchy has a range of accommodation and dining options. There's a visitor centre, garage, general store and some unique shopping.
