Our professional guide/s will collect you from your hotel. Sunrise tour time will be confirmed at time of booking. The tour duration is for 2 hours from pick up time
Once we have all guests on board we will head into the National Park, along the way our guides will give an interesting commentary about the park and a rundown of the tour proceedings. Warm drink of tea, coffee or soup and some light snacks will be offered on the tour.
Upon arriving at Dove Lake there will be chance to capture the great views of the lake and across it to Cradle Mountain, please remember that at times the Mountain will be shrouded in cloud but this still offers incredible scenery of the lake as the sunrises over the area from the east.
We take some short walks at Dove Lake to get that great vantage point for the sunrise photo. We will head off in the direction of either Glacier Rock or the Boat Shed. If time does allow we may even reach one of these points.
After the awe of viewing the area we take a short drive to Waldheim chalet, the first accommodation in the area and home to Gustav and Kate Weindorfer. The original chalet was built by them in 1912 but what stands today is a full replica built in the 1970’s by similar techniques using local King Billy pine.
After all this interactive and interesting touring, it all concludes at your hotel ready to get into a scrumptious breakfast after building up an appetite.
