A lot of the South Island’s natural hideaways are tough to get to, and that’s definitely the case with Mou Waho Island. This half-day cruise makes it easy; sail from Wanaka Marina to this isolated island in the middle of Lake Wanaka. Walk to the island’s very own lake, the Arethusa Pool, and take panoramic photos of the lake and the nearby Southern Alps, or take a dip at the beach near the island’s only jetty.
See rare native animals like the Southern Alps gecko and the buff weka
Learn about the nearby Alps and glaciers from your on-board guide
No itinerary on this island: explore Mou Waho at your own pace
Sleep in or save your afternoon: the water taxi makes two trips daily
Due to uneven surfaces, the walk is not recommended for those with walking disabilities but they are more than welcome to join us on the boat trip and skip the walk and stay at the bottom of the island.
