In winter Lake Wanaka is the ultimate snow sports destination, it has a snow park for boarders, cross country trails, and pretty piste for skiiers. In summer it's a playground for fishing, swimming, boating- and jet boating. It's also a picturesque lake – New Zealand's fourth largest, more then 300m deep, and surrounded by bare rocky peaks over 2000m high. There are a number of islands on the lake and several of them are being used as refuges for native animals or birds.
