Wanaka

Wanaka is a lovely holiday resort town nestled amongst breathtaking scenery on the southern shores of Lake Wanaka, in the heart of the Southern Lakes District, in Central Otago, New Zealand. Both the gateway to Mt Aspiring National Park and the ski fields of Treble Cone and Cardrona Alpine Resort, Wanaka is a beautiful place of lakes, mountains, rivers, diverse attractions, and endless activities. more

Wanaka is perhaps the South Island’s second greatest outdoor adventure capital after Queenstown – only about an hour’s drive away. Wanaka boasts some of New Zealand’s finest ski fields, 4WDing, hair-raising mountain biking, romantic wineries, wild river jetboating, heli-skiing, trout and salmon fishing, Lord of the Rings scenic tours, alpine horse trekking, clay pigeon shooting, sky-diving, paint balling, scenic flights – not to mention the Don't miss a visit to Stuart Landsborough's Puzzling World - a fun world of baffling and amazing puzzles, 3D mazes and puzzling eccentricity. An ideal activity for families.

Cut off from the sea by a series of towering mountain ranges, Wanaka is shielded from the coast’s wet weather and enjoys a dry climate with high sunshine hours. In this sheltered region, Wanaka boasts warm dry summers and clear crisp winters – making it ideal for both the summer outdoor activities and winter sports it hosts.

Wanaka is nestled on the shores of the pristine Lake Wanaka in the South Island’s high country (the region that formed the Middle Earth of the Lord of the Rings). This unforgettable resort town is surrounded by a halo of jagged snow-capped mountain ranges rising dramatically round it. A short distance away is the glacial Mount Aspiring National Park – part of the World Heritage Site Te Wahipounamu. This historic alpine world is a must see and a true marvel of nature. Surrounding Wanaka are a string of other large crystal-clear alpine lakes – most only a short drive away (the closest the popular Lake Hawea is only a 15 minute drive).

Wanaka is the perfect place for every type of tourist wishing to discover the great outdoors, no matter if you are a family, backpacker, group or couple – there is plenty for you. Looking for an adrenaline-pumping experience of a lifetime – choose your pick from a range of exciting options like skydiving, jetboating, skiing and more. Looking for family friendly activities – choose the options including The Puzzling World, scenic tours, boat rides, cycling tours. Looking for a romantic experience – choose from the range of options ranging from wine-tasting to scenic flights.

Wanaka hosts an impressive range of accommodation options spanning everything from five-star luxury hotels, to friendly bread and breakfast accommodation, to homely lodges, to budget motels, to outdoor camping. Whatever your group size, budget or preference is – or whether you are looking for self-catering accommodation or alpine retreat – Wanaka has the accommodation option for you.
