Paddock Bay

Lake Wanaka, New Zealand

With the pristine Mount Aspiring National Park serving as its backdrop, Lake Wanaka has a way of charming visitors into the Kiwi way of life. Heralded as one of the top 25 ski towns in the world, the region is popular during the winter months. In the summer, adrenaline junkies get their rush mountain biking through the lush Sticky Forest and partaking in an infinite array of water sports. Recover on the plush lounge chairs of the old school film house Cinema Paradiso, or head into town to discover local favorites like smoked fish, artisan cheese and the region’s renowned sauvignon blanc.
