What to Expect
Being outdoors and enjoying nature is a big part of visiting Wanaka. This boat and bike tour combo is the best way to get out and see Wanaka's natural side from two different perspectives.
The tour starts with a 30 minute boat cruise. As you slip through the crystal clear lake water, you'll pass the Ruby, Mou Tapu and Mou Waho islands and be treated to an endless view of the snow-capped peaks of the Southern Alps.
Then, the guided bike tour is unique and allows you to experience one of Wanaka's more remote biking trails with the support of an experienced bike guide. The ride itself is on historic farmland and areas of early Wanaka settlement, on a purpose-built biking and walking trail. This is a genuinely extraordinary local experience.
You'll have plenty of time to enjoy the trail and take breaks to marvel at the scenery or even swim in Lake Wanaka.
