What you can expect

One of the clearest and most popular lakes in the region, Lake Wanaka is a mecca for all things water sports. The perfect day out, Lake Wanaka offers visitors the chance to go canyoning, whitewater rafting, parasailing, rafting, sailing, jet skiing and more. If you're after views of the lake you can take to the skies with a scenic flight over the vibrant and colourful lake, to see the views the birds enjoy on a daily basis, additionally in winter the popular slopes of Queenstown including Treble Cone provide great views as you ski or snowboard down the powder runs. You could easily spend an entire day on Lake Wanaka with all of the things to see and do. It is a definite must-see for visitors to the Wanaka and Otago regions.
