Tips from the community

As legend goes, Lake Wakatipu was formed by a giant ogre, Kopu-wai. The ogre was burned while sleeping, leaving behind only his heart. Then his heart became the lake’s bed, which is still beating, creating the lake’s seiche, or rhythmic rise and fall. Today, Lake Wakatipu is famous for adventure tourism. You can try everything from ski fields, paragliding, bungee jumping, and trampoline jumps. To relax from a day filled with adventurous activity, Matakauri Lodge offers luxurious spas, an outdoor heated swimming pool, and fitness center.
