The Mackenzie region is home to an amazing range of glacier-fed lakes and rivers and is a paradise for all activities on the water.
There is plenty to explore – from boating in ‘Hobbit country’ on shimmering Lake Pukaki to stand-up paddleboarding in the Lake Ruataniwha lagoon.
All of this is set against the amazing backdrop of snowy peaks, golden tussock landscapes and New Zealand’s highest peak – stunning Aoraki/Mount Cook.
Encounter giant icebergs face-to-face as you explore the Tasman Glacier terminal lake by kayak in Aoraki/Mt Cook National Park.
Or experience the thrills of New Zealand’s only commercial hovercraft operation – located on beautiful Lake Pukaki.
