Continuing on…

After Lake Tekapo, we drove to Wanaka which is about two hours outside of Queenstown. Wanaka is a small resort town at the southern end of Lake Wanaka and is the gateway to Mt. Aspiring National Park. As a result, it boasts some fantastic outdoor acitivites including hiking, sailing, boating, skiing, whitewater rafting, etc.

We spent a few days in Wanaka and generally just enjoyed some relaxing downtime. We did a few bush walks around the lake- which is crystal clear, some kayaking and enjoyed the scenery. The seasons are reversed so New Zealand is well in to autumn which provided some amazing autumnal colors on the trees. It reminded me of New England in the fall. The mountain peaks were slightly snow-capped as well to complete the picture perfect scenery.
