AORAKI MOUNT COOK - WANAKA
187KM - 2 HRS 20 MINS
DEPART MT COOK FOR OMARAMA
Leaving Mt Cook if time permits a stop in at the Omarama hot pools is recommended for a welcome rest in- between some of New Zealand most specular mountain destinations. Omarama is Maori for "Place of Light", a reference to its extraordinarily pure and clear sky too. so sit back and reflect on the beautiful starry evenings you've just had the past few nights in the heart of the Mackenzie Country.

DEPART OMARAMA WANAKA
Omarama through to Wanaka is one of the longest stretches on this itinerary in-between day charging options at 115km. So our advice to you is to carefully plan your day and keep in mind that slow and cruisy driving will help to conserve your vehicles battery range today.
In winter, skiers flock here from all over the world for superb skiing and snowboarding at Cardrona and Treble Cone, cross-country skiing at Snow Farm and heli-skiing high in the Harris Mountains. But Wanaka, New Zealand, is much more than a winter destination. Year round activities include fishing, hiking, canyoning, climbing and skydiving. Visit the nearby towns of Queenstown, Cromwell and Alexandra, go shopping, or simply sit in a café and watch the world pass by.
One of the attractions of a stay in Lake Wanaka is that it combines the warmth of small town living with the quality and attention to detail you’d expect of an international holiday destination.
