Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

Wanaka is located on the southern shores of Lake Wanaka, in west Otago, South Island. Embraced by the Southern Alps, Wanaka is Otago's second resort town after Queenstown.

Wanaka offers a wide selection of gay friendly accommodation options for the most discerning gay and lesbian traveler including luxury apartment accommodation, exclusive resorts, budget backpackers, hotel accommodation and much more.

The crystal-clear waters of Lake Wanaka, New Zealand's fourth largest lake, reflect the snow-capped peaks of Mount Aspiring National Park. This is a region where you get the best of two worlds. First, it is an area of great natural beauty. Second, you can rest easy knowing there are great restaurants from which to choose. For the adventuress traveler, the surrounding mountains are challenging without being life threatening and there are world-class local guides to accompany you to the top.

The township of Wanaka is a magnet for gay and lesbian travelers who seek the perfect combination of outdoor adventure and indoor luxury. The lake, the mountains and the around-the-year events calendar will fill your day, every day.

Wine is always on the menu. Sip your favorite wine at a vineyard on Lake Wanaka's edge or sample great wine from one of the award-winning vineyards within easy traveling distance of down town Wanaka. If your taste buds run to beer, then Wanaka can satisfy even the most discerning with something to sip from the Wanaka Beerworks, an international award-winning brewery. And where there is great wine, you’ll find great restaurants and cafés to satisfy the largest appetites.

The seasons are particularly noticeable in Wanaka. Spring (October - December) brings an abundance of blossom. Summer (January - March) brings cloudless, hot, sunny days. Autumn (April- June) brings the rich colors of autumn whilst the winter (July – September) brings crisp days, and snow lovers can enjoy the freedom that can only be experienced skiing down pristine mountain slopes.

If you want to enjoy the great outdoors, spend a day or two fishing one of the river valleys. An elevated golf course overlooks Lake Wanaka, with its clear blue water and surrounding alpine vista providing plenty of excuses for a poor round. For those needing an adrenalin rush, then there’s always canoeing, climbing, river surfing, sky diving or down hill skiing to meet that need.

Every year Wanaka hosts a number of world-class festivals and events, including the biggest three-day air show in the Southern Hemisphere, Warbirds Over Wanaka. At the International World Heli-Challenge, the world's best snowboarders and skiers tackle the demanding back country alpine slopes for the supreme title.

So, if you're looking for a destination offering a wide range of activities throughout the year, as well as a place to relax and unwinde, then Wanaka, South Island has plenty to offer the gay and lesbian traveler.
