A visit to Mou Waho Island offers the perfect combination of a lake cruise, nature walk, wildlife encounter & outstanding panoramic views. Thirty minute cruise takes us to this nature reserve, situated in the middle of Lake Wanaka surrounded by stunning alpine vistas.

Your eco guide points out the varied native plant and birdlife including the rare Buff Weka, a very inquisitive flightless bird, (extinct on mainland NZ since 1920) on the 30 minute walk up to the island's secret - a lake on top of an island - the serene Arethusa pool.

We have 'high tea' on the summit overlooking the two lakes below with a panorama of the Southern Alps - geologically unique and very photogenic.

Plant a native tree & give back to NZ & this special island.
