New Zealand is a travel destination that is renowned for its unspoiled natural beauty, and the town of Wanaka is the perfect embodiment of that. Wanaka is only a small town, but possesses a charming personality and offers lots of outdoor activities. As a result, Wanaka is a favorite stopping point on many people’s New Zealand travel itineraries.
One of the best things to do in Wanaka is to allow Lake Wanaka to take your breath away. A plethora of activities can be enjoyed on the tranquil blue lake, including swimming, boating and fishing in the waters. Avid hikers will enjoy the moderately difficult trek to Roy’s Peak, a 5177 foot mountain peak that offers incredible views over New Zealand’s South Island and Lake Wanaka at its summit.
Wanaka can be visited and enjoyed at any time of year. For cool, crisp hiking conditions, travel to Wanaka in the autumn months that run between March and May.
