The mountains surrounding the lake provide a winter snow lovers paradise featuring top skifields and heliski facilities and the town itself features a pretty shopping village with a wide variety of ambient areas to relax & eat.
Wanaka, small town set on the edge of beautiful lake Wanaka is a popular holiday destination for New Zealanders and visitors alike. Known in winter for its ski fields and in summer for it's water sports and walks.
Set against a backdrop of the South Island's Southern Alps and with a pristine alpine lake at its doorstep, Wanaka offers time out from the pressures of life. Cardona and Treble Cone Ski areas are about 35 minutes drive from Lake Wanaka. Cardona faces south to catch plenty of cold dry snow and is possibly one of the most enjoyable ski areas in the world. Water based activities include guided fishing trips for brown and rainbow trout, a lake cruise offering unparalleled views of mountains, islands and vineyards or you can go jet boating and experience the beautiful and spectacular scenery of the mighty Clutha River.
