Roys Peak Track, Wanaka

#1 of 9 in Trails in Wanaka
See one of New Zealand's geological wonders at Roys Peak Track in the Southern Alps. Head up the steep track starting at Raspberry Creek parking lot to witness the glacier as it dramatically tumbles over a cliff face in Mount Aspiring National Park. The well-maintained walkway to reach the glacier cuts through the surrounding alpine scenery and includes safety ropes lining the route. However, the trail can become slippery in inclement weather and access to the route is not permitted in particularly adverse conditions.
