Beyond Wanaka By Trike

We journey beyond Wanaka and around the Pisa Range. Tighten up your helmet and we’ll take you on an unforgettable trike ride up the Cardrona Valley, over the Crown Range, through the Kawarau Gorge, and to Cromwell. From there, it’s a straight run through to Wanaka via Lake Dunstan and Luggate along State Highway 6. The views are amazing sitting high on the back of the trike.

We have several options to stop at along the way – possibly a winery for a taster, a stroll around old Cromwell Town, sample beers from a local brewery, visit one of NZ’s oldest historic hotels, have a bite at one of the road-side stalls or just stop for some amazing photos (Note: we can’t stop at them all).

Blue Pools

Leaving Wanaka, we cross the Clutha River and head towards Hawea. Travelling along the shores of Lake Hawea we reach ‘The Neck’ the point which separates Lake Hawea and Lake Wanaka where there are exceptional lookout points of both lakes. The winding road then snakes alongside Lake Wanaka to the settlement of Makarora. At our destination, the Blue Pools, we take a short walk (approximately 30 minutes each way) through some native beech forests crossing a swing bridge to the stunning pure glacial waters of the Makarora River’s Blue Pools.  Enjoy the tranquility of these natural wonders surrounded by spectacular mountain views. Then get a final blast of wind in your face while you enjoy the thrill of the trike ride back to Wanaka.
