Wanaka

4.6
Situated on the shores of Lake Wanaka in the Otago region, Wanaka has become a popular ski and summer resort area, owing to its extensive views of the lake and its proximity to some of the best slopes in the country. For an action-packed Wanaka holiday, head out onto the water for a range of thrilling activities, or up into the mountains for snow sports. Later, settle in for an evening meal and a bottle of the region's famous wine. For something a little more relaxed, stroll around the town's many boutique shops, enjoy the cafes, and venture out around the lake for great photo opportunities. Find what you're looking for from your Wanaka holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy New Zealand trip itinerary maker app.
