Bike

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.

Hike

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...

Drive

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.

Adrenalin

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.

Fish

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.

Climb

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.

Fly

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.

Dive

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

  • "Spectacular location, incredible design and good company. A glass of local pinot noir while watching the sun duck behind the Alps is good living! Feels like I'm staying in a modern art and design museum! Top notch!"
