Our Alpinism Studio guests say:

"We had a great stay in Wanaka. The studio really had everything we needed and was very comfortable, just perfect for a week of relaxing and exploring around Wanaka. Thanks for taking care of us, the loan of the bikes and the bottle of wine were also much appreciated! We would definitely stay there again next time and you never know we might be able to fit in some big hikes around Switzerland with you in the summer!" Linda & Alex, UK
