Wanaka Nature Encounter offers a day packed with wonder and magic. Start by taking a morning boat cruise up the pristine waters of Lake Wānaka to the remarkable island of Mou Waho.

From here, guests take a guided scenic walk to the summit of the island and find one of the true natural wonders of the region – a lake on an island on a lake.

Here, guests will have the chance to view some of New Zealand’s indigenous bird life, including the weka, bellbird and wood pigeon.

For those who want to help out on the country’s native reforestation journey, there will be the opportunity to plant New Zealand trees. This is a chance to leave a lasting legacy in the Otago region.

After lunching in one of Lake Wānaka’s great food spots, take New Zealand’s ultimate 4WD farm safari, exploring the private alpine backroads of West Wanaka Station, bordering Mount  Aspiring National Park and World Heritage area.

Receive in-depth education on farming life and Wānaka’s cultural and natural history from expert local guides. Refreshments are served at their very own mountain-top ‘alpine cafe’.
