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.
Take a break from the city and head to Milford sound Hwy and Routeburn Track. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at National Transport and Toy Museum and Aitken's Folly Vineyard. Explore Wanaka's surroundings by going to Gertrude Saddle (in Te Anau), Wooing Tree Vineyard (in Cromwell) and Cardrona Alpine Resort (in Cardrona). There's much more to do: grab your bike and head to Otago Central Rail Trail, do a tasting at Rippon Vineyard, and gain insight with WanaHaka Tours.
