Take an easy stroll along Glenorchy Lagoon Boardwalk, where you can soak up the breathtaking views and abundant nature of the lagoon and surrounding mountains. Capture pictures of Mt. Earnslaw (known also, in Māori, as Pikirakatahi) at one of the many viewing platforms, among the scenery where Peter Jackson filmed scenes for "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy.
