Get into the backcountry
With endless vistas of snow-capped peaks and terrain for the experienced, explore the winter wilderness in the back country of Wanaka.
For those with a hunger for the extreme, or a mountain or two to climb on their bucket list, winter mountaineering, ice-climbing, and heli-skiing, are an absolute #nzmustdo.
Breathtaking and wild, the back country of the Wanaka region is unpredictable, and even if you have the appropriate training and experience, please check with the local authorities before embarking on your journey.
Experienced, knowledgeable and highly skilled local mountain guides are the best way to truly experience this untouched landscape.
