Lake Wanaka is a relaxing all year round destination, with superb cafes, restaurants, shops and popular winter and summer outdoor pursuits...the perfect place for a holiday.
Lake Wanaka lies at the heart of the Southern Lakes, New Zealand 's alpine wonderland, in the southwest of the South Island . Wanaka's township is situated in a dramatic glacier-carved basin on the shores of the lake and is the gateway to the Mt Aspiring National Park World Heritage Area.
For today's travellers, Wanaka offers an unspoilt haven for adventure. Here you will find the least crowded snow, crystal clear fishing waters and a diverse landscape where golden tussock terraces meet forested slopes and glaciers.
Wanaka's population of 3,500 multiplies to 10,000 over the winter months. World class Snow sport areas, reliable snow, stable weather and miles of breathtaking mountains have ensured Wanaka's winter reputation.
Wanaka's cafes, restaurants and bars offer a sumptuous selection of food and wine, with a wide variety of accommodation designed to relax.
The beauty of the Wanaka region is unforgettable. Everything is here. Above all Wanaka is different. Come and experience it for yourselves.
