Our warmest season of the year, summer, is now in full swing in Wanaka.  We’re enjoying warm temperatures and long sunny days.  At this time of the year dawn arrives just before 6am and the sun eventually goes down after 9pm!   This makes for perfect days, so you can explore the Wanaka region.

‘Vin Tours’

French Flair in Wanaka….that is what Julie and Deane offer via their fleet of quirky, classic Citroen cars as you zoom around the scenic spots in the region.

Savour the unique flavours and nose of wines from surrounding ‘New World’ vineyards, especially the Pinot Noir varietal.

Or delve into a divine French-style picnic as you leave the settlement of Wanaka behind you for the nearby, almost untouched wilderness.

As the leaves turn golden in autumn (usually April and May) add a Funny French Car’s tour to your Wanaka experiences.
