Accommodation in Wanaka

Wanaka is a busy little town on New Zealand’s South Island that attracts avid nature lovers in the summer and snow enthusiasts in the winter. Its location on the southern end of Lake Wanaka, surrounded by many beautiful mountains, has made it the best snow sport destination in New Zealand. When the snows melt in summer, they reveal beautiful valleys and parks that call to hikers and campers around the world.

Wanaka enjoys two prominent tourist seasons. In the summer, visitors flock to hike Mount Aspiring National Park. The park includes many excellent day hikes, while more avid hikers will camp in the park for weeks at a time or even try to ascend the crown jewel of the park, Mount Aspiring (one of the tallest peaks in the country). Other popular summer activities include waterskiing, sailing, fishing, and jet boating on beautiful Lake Wanaka. Mountain biking and rock climbing are also great options for your holiday to-do list.

In the winter season, Wanaka becomes a skiing and snowboarding paradise. Visitors get to try some of New Zealand’s premier commercial fields, including Treble Cone, Cardrona Alpine Resort, Snow Park, and Snow Farm.

Though Wanaka is small, its nightlife is growing fast. The town includes many fine dining experiences and lots of tasty wine from its nearby wine region. Make sure to try the area’s specialty, pinot noirs.
