Wanaka (NZ Day 7-8)

On Day 6 of our trip in New Zealand, we are in Wanaka. It is going to be a relaxing day for us in Wanaka enjoying the vibes and chill in the little town of Wanaka.

Walking along the bay

Scaring ducks..

Buying Souvenirs and gifts..

Having a meal at Relishes Cafe

Mid afternoon, we drove 30 mins to Cardrona hotel, which is NZ oldest and most iconic hotel.

It has a nice restaurant which we had a beer and some snacks. Jaydon prefer feeding the birds which were eying for his wedges.

We end the day by driving back to Wanaka lake to take a picture of the tree that everyone must take a picture when you are in Wanaka (roll-eye).

We end the day back at the campervan park playing a game of Catch and flying a frisbee in strong wind.

The next day. We did a jetboat with GoJet Wanaka.

The ride was up the Clutha River. The view of the Clutha River was amazing. The only thing is that the spin and excitement were probably not as extreme then those through the canyon.

It was good for kid like Jaydon, which Jaydon complain that he got sea sickness.

Nevertheless, we did enjoy the ride as a family!

The next in our activity was Ridgeline 4WD. It was one of the highlight of our trip in Wanaka. Picking us up from Campervan park, we drove up to a private farm which covers a wide area of flat plains and mountains.

We had the chance to interact with the farm animals.

We made our way up the mountain on rough terrain on a 4WD.

The view on top of the mountain, overlooking Lake Wanaka was breathtaking.

We made our way down the mountain. We stopped at a creek for some coffee and snacks.

along the way down the mountain we stop by the site where the first settlers had their house built along the shore of Lake Wanaka.

Wanaka is a beautiful town. The 3 days we have time for rest and time for fun and adventure. I believe, this will not be the last time we come back here!
