      Lake Wanaka’s situation in the Southern Lakes of New Zealand gives it an unfair advantage. Soaring mountains yet trails that are well drained and rarely wet. A thriving mountain town, but with wilderness on it’s doorstep. Mountain Biking families, enthusiasts or even professionals – we have them all and we’ve got trails to keep you happy!
