About Wanaka

Located in the stunning alps of the South Island in New Zealand, visitors from around the world are drawn to the Wanaka region by its outstanding natural beauty. Wanaka’s lakes and mountains and proximity to Mt Aspiring National Park, makes it the ultimate base for outdoor activities, particularly skiing and snowboarding in winter.
But it’s not just the outdoor enthusiasts who have plenty to do, stroll the streets and be inspired by galleries, stylish shops and be spoilt for choice with a great selection of cool cafes and restaurants.
A short, 30 minute drive will have you at Cardrona Alpine Resort or Treble Cone Ski Area, the two nearest ski areas to Wanaka. Each resort is unique and offers a very different experience. Conveniently, both are available on the same lift ticket, the Wanaka FlexiPass, meaning you can experience both resorts in one holiday and choose your resort each morning!
