Crystal-clear, pristine lakes form a big part of the quintessential holiday – kiwi style. Whether it’s swimming, kayaking, jet boating or walking on the shores, at MoaTrek we’ve grown up with Christmas holidays lake-side and as a result, we have a few firm favourites. From the lakes of Rotorua, steeped in Maori legends, to the Middle-earth like lakes of Central Otago and Franz Josef, a New Zealand vacation wouldn’t be the same without the opportunity to enjoy these beautiful landscapes.
