One of the most scenic and accessible look out points in Wellington is the Mount Victoria Lookout point, which should be part of your hiker’s itinerary when you make your stay at a luxury hotel in Wellington such as the Copthorne Hotel Wellington Oriental Bay. With a central location that affords easy access to transport options, it is one of the ideal Wellington New Zealand hotels to host your next adventure in the city. Avid hikers have a couple of options when trekking up to the Mount Victoria Lookout. You could sweat it out up, head out on Oriental Bay and you’ll see a range of signs pointing you in the right direction. There are ample opportunities to stop and catch your breath, as well as take some great photographs of the stunning vista unfolding before you. The number 20 bus also goes straight to the top, and you could always hike back down. Mount Victoria provides all hikers and outdoor enthusiasts with the perfect view of Wellington Harbour, as well as the scenic downtown area, rendered spectacular when viewed from Mount Victoria.
