Wanaka

Situated on the shores of a stunning glacial lake and ringed by snow capped mountains, Wanaka is a paradise for the outdoor enthusiast. Whether you’re into snow sports or golf, sailing or rafting, there are activities to suit all tastes and interests.

An outdoor paradise

Wanaka is the main gateway to the Mt Aspiring National Park, which is a mecca for trampers and mountaineers alike. It has a network of huts and tracks suitable for a few hours’ walk to serious mountaineering routes.
Two large guiding companies are based in Wanaka, Aspiring Guides and Adventure Consultants both of which offer mountaineering courses and guided ascents. Wild Walks are a local boutique guiding company which offer amazing multiday hiking trips carrying only light packs in the Mt Aspiring National Park.

Get hooked

If you would like to take advantage of the superb fly fishing in the area, then Southern Rivers Fly Fishing Guides can show you the best spots.

Activities and adventure

Adrenaline junkies can get their fix from jumping out of a plane at 15000 feet with Skydive Lake Wanaka, or maybe by leaping off the Treble Cone skifield road with Wanaka Paragliding.

Wanaka’s dry, sunny climate make it an ideal place for rock climbing, either independently or with local company Wanaka Rock and mountain bikers are more than catered for with a challenging series of purpose-built trails cut into the local forest.

Relaxing

If you fancy more sedate activities, then maybe walk over to the Cinema Paradiso to catch a movie. It’s comfortable sofas and home baked cookies at half time are legendary. Perhaps take in a Lord of the Rings tour, or a round of golf at the stunning 18 hole local course.
