Days 571-574 - Wanaka 🐝
Located in the stunning alps of the South Island, Wanaka has a real buzz of a genuine alpine town. People are drawn here by its natural beauty, lakes, mountains plus it's an ultimate base for outdoor activities. We loved it!
Rhys and Carter decided to attempt the ultimate hike in the area which is Roy’s Peak Trek over looking Wanaka. It's an epic 16km return, 8 up, 8 down and 1620 meters high. They killed it and we were super proud of Carter but there was some sore legs for the next few days.
We based ourselves at Lake Hawea at a nice cheap camp called Kidds Bush on the lake with stunning sunrises but shocking sand flies.
In Wanaka we visited The Lavender Farm (where I got bitten on the bum by a bumble bee, Ouch!), Rob Roy Glacier, Lake Wanaka’s famous Wanaka Tree and surrounds but there is so much more! #wanakatree #wanakatree #lakewanaka #thatwanakatree #lavenderfarm #lavenderfarms #wanakalavenderfarm #robroyglacier #travel #travelphotography
