The second half of your travels from Wanaka to Arrowtown is a slow, twisting scenic drive along the Crown Range Road. Reaching an elevation of 3,678 feet, it becomes New Zealand’s highest sealed road as you wind between the Crown Range and the Criffle Range mountains. The tallest summit in the area is Crown Peak at 5,692 feet. This is a spectacular experience during the summer months. Travel is often challenging if not possible during the winter.
