Lake Wanaka is the fourth largest lake in New Zealand, measuring about 45 km from north to south and about 6 km from east to west. More than 10,000 years ago, water accumulated in a U-shaped valley carved out by glaciers over a long period of time and formed a lake. The beautiful scenery of the intricate blue lake and the surrounding mountains attracts many tourists throughout the year, who come to enjoy the activities on the lake such as kayaking and boating.
The vast Lake Wanaka, located in the heart of the Otago region, is a picturesque scenic spot surrounded by mountains over 2,000 meters high. Located at the southern end of the lake, which is long and narrow from north to south, Wanaka is a town where many people stay at leisure as a sightseeing base for this area rich in nature. It is a major resort area where you can enjoy various outdoor activities throughout the year, such as trekking and rafting in summer, and skiing and snowboarding in winter.
