Wanaka is the ultimate mountain biking destination and enjoys some of New Zealand's best single track riding and heli biking, all just a stone's throw away from the majestic Southern Alps.


Wanaka might just be the perfect walking holiday destination. Enjoy a leisurely stroll along Wanaka's many lake and riverside walking tracks. Or try something a bit more challenging...


Develop and improve your winter driving skills high on the Pisa Range, try four-wheel driving in the back country, go exploring in vintage Citroen automobiles or get noisy at Highlands Motorsports Park.


Another nearby town might have the 'Adventure Capital' label, but Wanaka holds its own with a great variety of adrenalin-inducing activities to get your heart rate well and truly going.


Whether you prefer your fish caught on the fly, lure or with bait, we can get you to where the opportunity to land your prize is better than most. Catch. Eat. Release.


Challenge your mind and body by exploring Wanaka's alpine environment. Get some altitude with options of rock climbing, ice climbing and basic or more advanced mountaineering.


Wanaka's location near the rugged terrain of the Mount Aspiring National Park and the proximity to Fiordland means it's ideally situated to enjoy both scenic flights and flight training experiences.


Sit back and watch as your helicopter delivers you deep into the Fiordland World Heritage Area. Live aboard private charters allow for unlimited diving for crayfish and scallops.

What our customers say

  • Modern new holiday retreat with all the amenties and with simply brilliant views. Wow, from the minute we walked in we knew we had landed in a very special place. We encountered a modern brand new holiday retreat with all the amenties and with simply brilliant views. We had 4 in our party, and were "swimming" in this spacious house. It can easily cater for a lot more with the 4 bedrooms. A lockup garage worked well for me as I could ride straight out and be on the mountain bike trails that are just 30 metres away behind the house. From there you could explore each valley on the extensive MTB trails. We cooked every second night in the well equiped kitchen and took in the brilliant views morning noon and evening. A special place that we would love to try to get back to soon.
