Lake Wakatipu is an inland lake in the South Island of New Zealand. It is in the southwest corner of the Otago region, near its boundary with Southland. Lake Wakatipu comes from the original Māori word Whakatipu wai-māori.
There’s plenty of ways to enjoy the water, from paddle boarding to kayaking. Make sure you wear a lifejacket and if you go for a swim, be prepared for very cold temperatures (8 – 10 degrees Celsius), even in the warmer months.
Alternatively, let someone else do the driving/sailing and take a cruise, whizz across the lake on a jet boat or enjoy a spot of fishing.
