Wanaka, Wanaka

#1 of 28 in Winter Sports in New Zealand
Water Body · Ski Area
Encircled by vast lakes and towering mountains, Wanaka serves as one of New Zealand's premier tourist resorts. In the winter, snow sports beckon with skiing, snowboarding, sledging, and more, while the warm summers offer opportunities for hiking, fishing, kayaking, or simply relaxing and enjoying the view. Once you've worked up an appetite, make a stop at one of the friendly establishments on the resort's cafe strip. Wines from the nearby vineyards are particularly popular here and most locals will be able to tell you all about them. Plan my Wanaka trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
