Wanaka is a peaceful town draped on the shores of Lake Wanaka boasting unforgettable mountain views and a number of high adrenaline activities.
A stark contrast from the hive of activity in Queenstown, Wanaka offers a slower pace with sensational boutique dining and wineries. The relaxing atmosphere and stunning views see travellers flock here year round. During the summer months the sparkling lake sets the scene for a number of outdoor activities, while in winter, Wanaka's close proximity to a number of New Zealand's top ski fields sees skiers using the town as a base.
