Sweep out across Lake Wakatipu, admiring the idyllic surroundings of lush green hillsides and jagged mountain peaks, and head for Pig and Pigeon Islands.

Land at one of the islands' conservation areas and set off for a nature stroll through the native beech forest as you try to spot the different species of birds that inhabit the local area. In particular, keep your eyes peeled for the endangered flightless Weka bird, a rare and special sight.
