Your people work hard for their rewards.
Your reward is retaining them.
Genuine appreciation can make that happen.
And nothing says thank you like Wanaka.
It starts when the scenery makes their jaws drop...
And once it dawns on them that instead of crowds there's a limitless supply of space, instead of any constrained clutter there's a freedom to try anything you want, and instead of being what you are you can be what you feel....
....that's when everyone starts thinking a little like we do in Wanaka.
And it never leaves them.
When your people have moved mountains...
You might want to give them a couple back.
“We travelled to Lake Wanaka from the USA as part of a team building and incentive trip to New Zealand. The time spent in Wanaka was the highlight of our time in NZ and provided an unforgettable lifetime memory for both myself and the team. An incentive trip to Wanaka is an incredible way to reward your staff”….

Wilderness Adventures & Team Building
With Mount Aspiring National Park, a world heritage area, right at Wanaka's backdoor there's no shortage of opportunities to experience the majesty of its glaciers, rainforest, waterfalls and mountains.
Days can begin with a helicopter flight for breakfast on a glacier, then rendezvous with a jetboat on the river bank for an exhilerating ride into the wild, swap the jet-boat for a 4WD and then finish the day watching the sunset over Lake Wanaka from the top of mountain with a glass of local pinot noir ... Or for budding Bear Grylls types, how about an overnight wilderness experience in one of the many backcountry huts?
Step into Wanaka's winter wonderland... Roar over the snow in a new model sports car during a snow & ice driving experience; snow-shoe into a remote backcountry hut; snow-mobile to the top of the Pisa Range for the best picnic view in town; or make-like a polar explorer and take a husky dog-sled ride across the snow.
Of course Wanaka is also famous for its skiing, snowboarding and the biggest heli-ski terrain outside of North America....and our apres-ski scene will make sure your day always finishes with a warm glow.
Lake Wanaka is one of those places where you can tick-off multiple must-dos from your bucket list...
Strap yourself to a beautiful stranger and skydive from 15,000ft; don a leather flying helmet, goggles and silk scarf and step-back in time for a flight in a vintage 1940s tiger moth; or, if you prefer, take the stick yourself and pilot your own scenic flight; and Milford Sound is just a short scenic flight away across the glaciers of Mt Aspiring National Park. Wanaka is a mecca for aviators of all kinds, culminating in the Warbirds Over Wanaka air-show held at Easter.
Seclusion in cosmopolitan luxury relaxing in total indulgence, or evenings of rustic bonhomie in high-country huts, all you have to do is match your needs, budget and mood and unpack your bags.
Wanaka is the setting for some spectacular locations for luxury accommodation and boasts an exlusive tented village nestled in the heart of the Southern Alps, and a high mountain chalet, both accessed only by helicopter offering the pinnicle in premium hospitality... location, location, location....
