Lake Wanaka Tourism
The town’s stunning mountain and lakeside setting and proximity to Mt Aspiring National Park, makes it the ultimate base for outdoor activities.
For the adventure seekers there’s canyoning, skydiving, via ferrata, off road tours and airborne adventures. Mt Aspiring National Park will tempt serious hikers and climbers, but Wanaka’s for everyone, so if a stroll is more your style, there’s a great selection of short tracks close to town, that offer something suitable for the whole family. Lakeside walks will take you to #thatwanakatree, Rippon Vineyard, and Bremner Bay.
It’s not just the outdoor enthusiasts who have plenty to do, stroll the streets and be inspired by galleries, stylish shops and be spoilt for choice with a great selection of cool cafes, excellent restaurants, craft breweries, award-winning wineries and an artisan distillery.
Sitting on the 45th parallel Wanaka has four distinct seasons - hot dry summers, cool autumns, lush spring and crisp winters, making it a year-round destination.
