otago peninsula tour

Otago Peninsula and Taiaroa Head is a unique and very special place. It is a place that every visitor to Dunedin should see.

– David Attenborough, BBC

The Otago Peninsula, Dunedin is situated on the east coast of the South Island of New Zealand. 

The Otago Peninsula is predominantly of volcanic origin, steep and on the Pacific Ocean side very rugged. The harbour side, warm, sunny and sheltered and has a micro climate that is better than anywhere else on the Otago coast. A number of walkways give you access to many breathtaking views and sheer cliff faces like "The Chasm" and "Lovers Leap".  

The Otago Peninsula together with its 20 km long harbour, is the home of an abundance of magnificent world famous marine wildlife, namely The Royal Albatross, the endangered Yellow Eyed Penguin (or Hoiho) and the Little Blue Penguins.

You will also find many Seals, as well as The New Zealand Sea Lion, one of the rarest seal species in the world, the occasional Sea Elephant and Stewart Island Shags in their natural habitat. 

Add to this Larnach Castle the only castle in Australasia, and your holiday is complete.
