A nice slow ascent beginning with a few small river crossings. Nice views at the top of lake Wanaka and lake Hawea. Definitely bring a hat! https://www.doc.govt.nz/parks-and-recreation/places-to-go/otago/places/lake-hawea-township-area/things-to-do/grandview-mountain-track/

It’s a well-developed trail with a gradual ascent and “moderate “ for the cardio workout. The views at the top are very good, but the trail up/back itself is boring. The five or six stream crossings will make you appreciate trekking poles. We picked this as an easier alternative to Isthmus Peak but were a little disappointed.

A nice slow ascent beginning with a few small river crossings. We went up to the summit of grandville mountain and it took us 5 hours, about 18km total. Whew! Nice views at the top of lake Wanaka and lake Hawea. We only saw a few other people, including one mountain biker. Definitely bring a hat!

Nice and quite easy hike. We went additional 2,5km up to the summit and it was definitely worth it!

Would class this a little Hardy than easy in some places... Great views... Take lots of water and sun screen.

Stunning walk. Amazing views all the way up of the valley and over Lake Hawea and on to Wanaka.

First to Review

Quiet and track and a good alternative to Roy’s Peak but we only saw 2 or 3 other groups. Challenging without being too hard and with fantastic views at the top.
