Island in Wanaka
Mou Waho Island Attraction
Mou Waho, Otago 9382, New Zealand
We decided to have lunch on our return from the hike up to the lake so set off up the well formed 1km track. This is looking back down the lake, Glendhu Bay is around that far point on the right.
When we thought that the views could not get any better, we were surprised. Andy took us to another spot on the other side of the hilltop, where the rocks are in the shape of an armchair. There is a big concave crevice in one of the rocks where you can sit and rest your arms on. You actually feel as if you are sitting on an armchair, but with the most incredible view of Lake Wanaka. The rock is naturally shaped in such a way. Just amazing!
It is around 20 kms from Wanaka, which is far too far to kayak. You can do guided tours but they costs $150 to $200 a head. We just arranged a boat trip out and back for $400 in total which worked out excellent value.
