There are many ways to experience the outdoor playground surrounding Wanaka, but perhaps the most rewarding way to see the best of everything is to take a guided tour. There are no shortage of tour companies waiting to show you around the top attractions, activities and scenic highlights. Lake Wanaka and the surrounding rivers provide the perfect location for jet boating, kayak tours and lake cruises while Mount Aspiring National Park has some fantastic Mountain bike and walking trails to explore. Scenic flights by helicopter or fixed wing plane will give you some great views of the valleys, rivers and mountains around Wanaka.
Because Wanaka is so close to Mount Aspiring National Park, flights are able to spend more time over the glaciers and Southern Alps, giving you the best chance to see these natural wonders close up.

Some tours include a scenic flight, bush walk and jet boat ride all in the one package to make sure you don’t miss a thing. For an adrenalin rush you can climb, slide and swim your way through a canyonning tour. The canyons around Wanaka provide some exhilarating chutes and waterfalls to make your tour one to remember.
