That’s right folks, even if you get so drunk you black out and wake up with a cold flannel on your face, at least you’ll wake up to crisp mountain air, a seriously sexy view of the lake, and Base Fm blaring on 107.3!!
We at Base FM have put together some links if you’re feeling a little stumped on how to get there and where to stay.
Travel: If you’re flying, book your flights into Queenstown. We suggest hiring a car cause let’s face it, it’s FREEEEDOM! Jucy has some sweet deals, and you’ll feel fresh in a bright green machine cruising in comfort all the way to Wanaka, But if that’s not your bag, you can catch a bus. These guys run an effective shuttle service with affordable prices.
Accommodation: If you’re traveling solo or with a friend, and keen to keep it cheap and cheerful a couple of nights at a backpackers is the one.
What else to do: If you’re serious about making your moments count while spending time down in Wanaka, Make sure you head to the Lake Wanaka ISite online and pre plan a couple of activities while you are there. We suggest hiring some bikes and touring all the way around the lake – best way to see the lake from all angles. There’s also hiking, flying and so many water activites, you’ll have to hit the link to find out more yourself!
See you there!
