Wanaka's attractions and activities 

Lake Wanaka and it's surroundings offers a remarkable choice of pastimes and activities. Unwind and explore any one of three walking tracks right on our doorstep. Catch a trout in the river which is only 50m from the front door.
In summer the river and lake provide pristine fishing and boating conditions.
In winter, Ferryman's Cottage B & B is the perfect choice for a ski holiday with easy access to Cardrona, Treble Cone, Snow Park and Snow Farm.
Lake Wanaka and the Southern Alps are bursting with activities for people who love everything from relaxing, passive pursuits to the once in a lifetime adventures.
