when to visit lake wanaka

The four distinctive seasons of the Wanaka area allow for guests to enjoy the magnificent and beauty of the surrounding area at any time of the year, while staying in our water-front Wanaka accommodation.

Wanaka's long, hot summers fade slowly into beautiful autumn colours, before the clear mountain air promises snow and crisp winter days. As the snowfalls melt, spring returns with its lush, bright greens.


Winter ushers in the spectacular snow sports possibilities of the Wanaka and Queenstown regions. The ski fields of Treble Cone, Cardrona, Snow Park and Snow Farm are within easy reach making Edgewater a perfect base for skiing, snowboarding and winter adventure.


Spring at Edgewater is the season of rejuvenation, when bare winter branches flourish with wild greens and new spring growth. The landscape around Wanaka comes alive with the energy of the season. At the water’s edge our lush lawns provide the perfect setting to enjoy the spring days.


Summer turns Central Otago into an adventurer’s playground. Edgewater basks in long hot days by the brilliant blue waters of Lake Wanaka. Mountain biking, kayaking, hiking and boating on Lake Wanaka abound - along with lazy days visiting local wineries or playing a round of golf.


Autumn is a season of beautiful changes, when Wanaka turns from green to fiery reds and gold as the trees colour the landscape.
