Romantic Holidays in Lake Wanaka

Nature makes romance flourish
And Wanaka has more nature than most.

Taking a break from the mundane isn’t just a common sense step for lovers of passion and romance, it’s a must-do for couples of all ages and vintages.

From newly-mets to mature canoodlers, the lure of a place to court and share each other’s likes and loves is irresistible.

Some say there’s something in the water, some say there’s something in the atmosphere but at Lake Wanaka, love is always in the air. Committed couples swear they can hear it…

A selection of ambiences makes it perfect for first trips together overlooking heavenly views; PDAs for OAPs near fabulous F and B or shopping, and mountain getaways for couples who’d rather their secrets stayed that way.
