Travelling around Wanaka in your own campervan hire or motorhome is nothing short of awesome.
From Lake Wanaka, Lake Hawea and the surrounding mountains you’ll never be short of awe inspiring landscapes and views on your travels.
The most popular walking trip is up Mount Iron - a local favourite. You can park up your campervan at the bottom and make your way to the top, you can see the entire Wanaka township and even out to Lake Hawea.
Within a 45 minute drive you have 3 of some of the largest ski fields in the Southern Hemisphere that will make you fall in love with the snow, snowboarding and the incredible views.
Staying at the local Cardrona Hotel is among the favourites for motorhome rental tourists traveling the area - it seduces you with its heritage and delicious food.
Wanaka also has a world renowned Puzzling World where you can spend hours going through some amazing mind tricks that can make you second guess how gravity works and illusions that will shock you to your core.
Before you leave, you need to stop in and watch a movie at the infamous movie theater - it uses old lazy boys and mini cars from the 90s as seats. They even deliver wines/beers into the movies at half time.
Full of wonders, you’ll love traveling in your campervan around Wanaka.
On your exit you have so many adventures awaiting you.
You can head north and go up the West Coast into Fox Glacier and experience the local glaciers.
You can go over the Crown Range and and explore Queenstown is all of it’s glory.
Going inland will take you to Cromwell and Alexandra - towns that have their own magical history in the gold rush era.
No matter which direction you go down, you’ll fall in love all over again.
Venture forth, traveller.
