During the second day in Lake Wanaka, we did a day of hiking at some local trails. There are a few well-known hikes in the area, the most famous is Roy's Peak which offers stunning summit views after a long, steep trek. This is reserved for more experienced hikers as it takes about five hours to complete the hike.
Another local hike is Rocky Mountain Trail, which offers a great lookout view of surrounding snowy mountains but also gives a great panorama of Lake Wanaka. If you are into hiking and find yourself in the lake Wanaka area, I highly recommend both of these trails.
