Wanaka Activities (minus the snow)!

Posted by Release Wanaka on June 19, 2017

Wanaka is a winter wonderland and a snow lovers dream with plenty of snow related activities. But, not everyone is here for the skiing or snowboarding, some of us wish to enjoy the winter months minus the snow!

The team at Release Wanaka have put together their favourite non-snow activites:

1/ Wanaka Wine Tours - "Wanaka Wine Tours has been in operation since 2001. It is the original wine touring company in and around Wanaka. We take you to the best places to sample award winning wines and to hear the local stories. As we travel our friendly and knowledgeable guides will tell you tales and stories of the people and land as you enjoy the stunning scenery." 

2/ Eco Wanaka Adventures - "Come with us to see glaciers in World Heritage Mt Aspiring National Park, or walk through Middle Earth, following the very footsteps of the dwarves and wizard as they traversed the Misty Mountains, as seen in the hobbit movies. Let us take you on a helicopter flight to three pristine Alpine Lakes, Bear Grylls training ground seen in the series “Get out Alive”."

3/ Wanaka Bike Tours - "Wanaka Bike Tours is like no other adventure guiding company. For us, the outdoors is not only a passion, it's a whole lifestyle, and it's this experience we will share with you on each tour. Many of our biking locations are exclusive to us and off the beaten track to really give you a sense of adventure, from NZ's highest heli bike to a breathtaking beautiful leisure ride around Lake Wanaka."

4/ Cardrona Hotel & Cardrona Distillery - Visit the iconic Cardrona Hotel with its rustic charm and delicious, traditional pub food. While you are out that way, take a look at the Cardrona Distillery and join a tour, which run on the hour daily. There is also a photo opportunity beside the Cardrona Bra Fence where donations are appreciated for a great cause!

5/ U-Fly Wanaka - "A U-FLY flight over the beautiful mountains and crystal clear Lake Wanaka offers the finest alpine scenery in the South Island of New Zealand. This may be your first flight lesson - YOUR chance to fly the plane will be an incredible highlight of your holiday. Rated as the #1 must do activity, you will be assisted with an experienced and friendly flight instructor."
