Is strolling, walking and hiking your thing?  Well, there’s heaps of options on offer during your stay in Wanaka, no matter what your group’s abilities and interests are!   Here’s some ideas to get you started:

  • The Blue Pools walk (just past Makarora on the way to Haast) is fun for all ages with a couple of swing bridges!!

  • The team at Lake Wanaka Tourism vote the Rob Roy Glacier track as Wanaka’s best half day walk. You’ll see native golden tussock, dark manuka trees and beech forest with all its native birdlife.


  • The Outlet track is easy walking and follows the Clutha River towards Albert Town – it is a locals’ favourite!


  • The Mount Iron walkway is near to the centre of town; it’s a loop track that offers 360 degree views of the Clutha River Basin stretching to the majestic Southern Alps.

If you’re interested in meeting some locals while you stretch your legs, you could join the Wanaka Walkers for their Monday walk – visitors are welcome!
