Lake Wanaka's Airborne Adventures

Lake Wanaka and Lake Hawea from the air are an experience never to be forgotten and there’s no better way to capture the majesty of the region.

The towering snow capped Southern Alps, turquoise waterways of Lakes Wanaka and Hawea and native bush all combine to make up one of the most spectacular sights in the world. Discovering it from above is a thrilling experience whether you chose to board a plane, a helicopter or challenge yourself to a tandem skydive. You can even take the controls yourself as you learn to fly.

Feeling the adrenaline rush of a 12,000 ft jump over New Zealand’s most breathtaking landscape is a lifetime experience. Another is to discover the wilderness of the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage Area, which stretches from Mt Aspiring National Park to Fiordland, with a scenic flight, for many the highlight of their New Zealand adventure. Make Lake Wanaka, New Zealand the starting point to your sky high adventures. You’ll be blown away.
