Water Activities

Crystal-clear water is the heart of the region’s outdoor lifestyle

For many people the water around Lake Wanaka and Lake Hawea is the main reason to visit and you can’t blame them. The lakes, rivers, beaches, islands and waterfalls are just waiting to be explored by kayak, boat, SUP, sail or jet boat.

It’s up to you how you choose to enjoy them.
