WHY Wanaka FOR Schools

Wanaka is a resort town on New Zealand’s South Island, situated on the southern end of Lake Wanaka and one of the most pristine parts of the world.

Wanaka is the gateway to the Southern Alps, Mount Aspiring National Park and a great base location for groups wishing to access the ski resorts of Treble Cone and Cardrona. In your free time you can explore the town and enjoy the stylish shops, galleries and cafes.

Wanaka is the ideal location for school groups looking for an area a little more quiet, whilst enjoying the stunning surrounding mountain landscape.

Cardrona Ski Resort is the perfect place for beginners and intermediates, whilst Treble Cone is a little more advanced. Cardrona is an easy 40min drive from Wanaka, and Treble Cone is approximately 30min away.
