Lake Wanaka’s spectacular location at the foot of the Southern Alps with the wilderness of the Mt Aspiring National Park nearby makes it a magnet for outdoor lovers the world over. Many of our operators chose Lake Wanaka as a base to indulge in their passion, be this boating, hiking, climbing, skiing or mountain biking, just to name just a few. In winter, skiers flock here from all over the world for superbskiing and snowboarding at Cardrona and Treble Cone, cross-country skiing at Snow Farm and heli-skiing high in the Harris Mountains. But Wanaka is much more than a winter destination. Year round activities include fishing, hiking, canyoning, climbing and skydiving. Visit the nearby towns of Queenstown, Cromwell and Alexandra, go shopping, or simply sit in a café and watch the world pass by.
Lake Wanaka has a variety of accommodation to suit all travel needs.
