LAKE WANAKA HONEYMOONS
Adventure & Nature
There is plenty of enjoyable activities for all in Wanaka. If you love the wind in your hair whilst skiing, adventure sports and jetboating they are all on your doorstep. If that is not for you, you can simply dip your toes in the lake on Summer’s day. Something special about Wanaka is its accessibility to nature and the surrounds, you can drive any one of the roads leading out and stumble across endless adventure. Or if you are feeling really enthused and energetic you can take on one of the splendid tramps (walks) in the area.
Jetboards New Zealand
Filling in your time in this region is not really hard, it is probably more to do with how many adventures can you handle in one trip? This high energy activity is thrilling and full of excitement, with various options available enabling you to do some incredible and impossible things. A great activity to gather all your friends together before the wedding or finish your trip on a literal high.
Lake Wanaka Tree
When in Paris you must see the Eiffel Tower, when in London you wouldn’t pass Big Ben by without a look, so we really can not leave out the very famous Wanaka Lake tree. This might possibly be the only time you will feel crowded in Wanaka. If you can avoid the mass of tripods and selfie sticks at dusk to visit this unassuming, humble tree we suggest you do. However we can’t allow you not to go and see, a tree growing in a lake for goodness sakes. Then to affirm your visitor status make sure you tell every local you've been.

Address: Tapley Paddock, Otago 9305
New Zealand is world famous for many things, Steve’s fishing shop, a lot of pies and great walks (the world famous thing will make sense once you have been here). You may have some time to enjoy a tramp or two whilst on your wedding trip and we can thoroughly recommend the Roy’s Peak track. Make sure you time it with a fellow walker or take a companion to make the most of the photo opportunities (our photo by Micimage) along the way - we fear even the longest selfie stick on this occasion isn’t long enough.
16km Return, 5-6 Hours
The track is closed for lambing 1 October - 10 November.
Address: Roy's Peak Track carpark, Aspiring Road (6km from Wanaka township)
This well known, award winning ski field is open to day skiers and locals. Get kitted out in town before heading up and enjoy having a go or showing off if you know how to. Even if you don't ski it is worth a visit for coffee and cake at the top cafe. The great views and a lively atmosphere make a really nice trip out. If you head along on closing day like we did, you'll have the chance to dress up!
Open 23 June to 2 October 2016.

It just does not get more Kiwi than this, rushing down a shallow river at great speed through the family farm on the edge of a National Park. An absolute must do and speak to Danyel about arranging a picnic too, we promise you won't be disappointed.
