We look forward to welcoming you to our lodge and will make every effort to customise your time with us to create your perfect honeymoon break. We have put this itinerary together for a 3 night stay with us as a suggestion. However, we can adjust the length of stay and tailor the activities to meet whatever you want - just ask.
Included in our Wanaka Honeymoon Couple Package is:
Day 1 - Arrive Lake Wanaka
- 3 nights accommodation in our Superior King Honeymoon Room
- Mt Aspiring & Glaciers helicopter scenic flight and snow landing
- Bottle of bubbly on arrival
- Tickets to Cinema Paradiso
- Tea, coffee, juices & home baking always available
- Aperitifs of local wines and beers each evening
- Full cooked and/or continental breakfast daily
Arrive at Wanaka Springs Lodge (check in any time from 2.30pm.)
This afternoon enjoy a leisurely 3 minute stroll in to Wanaka's town centre. Check out the galleries & the eateries, and if time allows, walk along the shore of Lake Wanaka for some evening photo opportunities. Or perhaps just relax in our spa pool located in a secluded corner of our garden - with a glass of bubbles maybe - and soak up the magnificent mountain views. You've arrived!
Join us at the lodge at 6.00pm for aperitifs before enjoying one of Wanaka’s great restaurants for your evening meal.
Day 2 - Mt Aspiring National Park
After a scrummy breakfast, be sure to grab your camera before taking the short drive around the shores of Lake Wanaka to rendezvous with your helicopter at the entrance to the Mt Aspiring National Park, where your spectacular 1 hour scenic heli-flight starts from. You will fly up close to the majestic peak of Mt Aspiring and will see stunning ice blue glacial fields and snow covered vistas. There will be a snow landing and your pilot is well practiced at taking your photo with the magnificent backdrop of Mt Aspiring.
After returning to the Lodge, enjoy the leisurely walk along the shores of Lake Wanaka to Rippon Vineyard, reputedly the most photographed vineyard in New Zealand! Wander up through the vines to their tasting room and soak up magnificent views across the lake and mountains. Great wines, great cheeses and astounding views!
This evening join your hosts for aperitifs, before heading out for your evening meal.
Day 3 - Lake Wanaka at Leisure
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at the Lodge.
You can enjoy a lazy or an action packed day in and around Lake Wanaka – walks, mountain biking, kayaking on the lake, quirky Puzzling World, a massage perhaps, shopping, cafes – or we can assist you with a booking on to any one of a number of great activities (not included in rate).
Skydiving perhaps? Jet boating a braided river up the magnificent Matukituki Valley? A wine tour? Horse Riding? A 4 wheel drive high country tour? An eco lake cruise and island nature walk? Eco rafting? What about U-Fly - your fun chance to fly the plane! Canyoning? Your choice!
Come back to the lodge & relax in the spa! After aperitifs, we have two tickets to Cinema Paradiso for you - one of Lonely Planet Guides 'a "must-do" movie experience'. You can enjoy irresistible homemade icecream & hot cookies, or a meal & wine at intermission.
Day 4 - Before you leave Wanaka
After the romance of the mountains, the beauty of the lake and some genuinely warm 'Kiwi hospitality', join us for a final breakfast before your later checkout time of 11.00am. You will be leaving us with our very best wishes for a very long & very happy life together!
