Scenery, wild remote places where the only footprints are yours contrasted with the polished hospitality of a resort town. Resort town Wanaka ticks the visitor boxes for many people. Wanaka is internationally famous for its over instagrammed mountain, Roys Peak. That takes some doing with millions of outstretched arms backdropped against a striking landscape. Plus it looks scary, is the person going to plummet off the mountain. Wanaka’s charms are year round, summer magic and winter wonderland of iced peaks and power snow for skiers.
