Set snugly between two soaring mountain ranges, a glacier-topped peak and the river-fed headwaters of Lake Wakatipu, Glenorchy is a unique destination with an endless variety of things to do, from the peaceful to the exhilarating to the sublime.

Camp Glenorchy, part of the Headwaters Group and sister to Mrs Woolly's General Store and Campground, is an innovative eco lodge committed to delivering environmental, financial and community sustainability. Designed and built according to the specifications laid out in the Living Building Challenge, Camp Glenorchy not only feels right but it does right too - with all profits going back into the Glenorchy community
