The Majestic Rob Roy Glacier Track

Rewarded the next morning after weather obstacles, the Southern Alps were dusted with an early first snow and the sun was blazing. “We don’t usually have fall colors and snow on the mountains at the same time, as snow comes in late May,” said our Lake Wanaka innkeeper Dave.

 We hiked the Rob Roy Glacier trail, famous as the “world’s most beautiful day hike” my brother David had told me.  The scenery was amazing.

And it was indeed a fabulous day hike up the creek to just below the Rob Roy glacier.

A couple showed up at our inn who had just gotten married on the trail, busing in all the relatives and guests for the ceremony!  You can see why they picked this place.
