Escape the crowds and discover the magic of Mou Waho Island.
Where you can find an island, on a lake, on an island, on a lake, on an island on the sea!
Mou Waho Island is a protected nature reserve and is home to many native New Zealand birds including the curious and flightless Weka.
A short walk takes you to the top of the island where you will be exposed to breathtaking panoramic views of the Arethusa pool, Lake Wanaka and its surrounding peaks.
Our water taxi leaves Wanaka Marina twice-daily travelling 15km up Lake Wanaka, passing Mou Tapu Island and the steep cliff of fisherman's cove to Mou Waho Island.
Your friendly and knowledgeable skipper will inform you of the fascinating geology of the alps and the glaciers that created the lake as you travel along its sparkling waters.
Enjoy 1.5 hours exploring the Island and hiking to the hidden lake.
