Ride of a Lifetime: Dart Stables Glenorchy

Sep 26, 2011

At the head of Lake Wakatipu lies Glenorchy, gateway to the Mt Aspiring National Park and the delta between the Dart and Rees rivers. It’s a place of stunning beauty, immortalised in the world famous Lord of the Rings trilogy, and it’s the home of Dart Stables.
