Slow down and enjoy - what to do?
Lake Wanaka invites you to slow down and revel in life's riches: time with friends and family, or soothing solitude in our beautiful area.
The region's lakes and rivers are famous for their fish: there are some wily old trout lurking in these green waters. We can offer a range of guided fishing tours, lessons or heli-fishing.
There are walks a plenty, through bush, up hills, over mountains, along the lake or many rivers and streams. Walking and cycling tracks weave around the lakes and ascend the nearby hills to give spectacular views of Mt Aspiring in the distance. Scenic flights offer a bird's-eye view of this magnificent wilderness area
Enjoy the company of friends over a game of golf , test your puzzle skills, or trek on horse-back high up into the golden hills where prospectors searched for gold.
