3 Days at The Dacha

3 Days at The Dacha

For those looking for the ultimate ‘second home’ from which to enjoy Wanaka’s inspiring landscapes you cannot beat The delectable Dacha. Embrace the company of family and friends, over an après ski glass of Central Otago’s finest, in one of the endlessly spacious flowing spaces.

Soak up breathtaking scenery in the Southern Alps

Wanaka is home to some of the most breathtaking mountain scenery in the Southern Alps and so there are worse places to consider for a spectacular winter break. Enjoy boundless untracked powdered snow in the untouched mountain wilderness.

Build memories that will last long after the snow melts

Choose from ice climbing, hiking, ice-driving or cat-skiing if it is adrenaline you are after… or indulge in a private heli-ski experience followed by gourmet lunch, drinks and fun in the snow. Bookend your days activities with a sumptuously spacious luxury home. Take in each other’s company, alongside the panoramic views and build memories together that’ll last a lifetime.



In need of some inspiration? Explore our sample itinerary…

These are some of the wonderful experiences you can squeeze into a three night stay in wonderful Wanaka.

Day 1 | Arrive & Unwind

Arrive at The Dacha to dramatic panoramic views of Lake Wanaka and its spectacular mountainous landscape. Spend your first evening unwinding. Why not enjoy a glass of champagne whilst taking in the view. If you think preparing food on your first night away sounds like a chore, hiring one of our private chefs for the weekend could be the way to go. With this option, champagne and a cheese platter will be awaiting your arrival.

Day 2 | Untracked Slopes & Gourmet Dining

Enjoy a day exploring the most breathtaking privately-owned ski area in the Southern Alps, with terrain only accessible by snowcat. The ski area offers pristine high-country terrain, world class views and gourmet dining in an atmosphere of relaxed and understated luxury. No more than 24 guests are allowed on the mountain each day and so the untouched terrain is boundless. Break up a full day of backcountry skiing in this magical valley with a three-course gourmet meal with paired wine on the deck of an Alpine Hut.

Day 3 | Explore Mount Aspiring & Enjoy Central Otago's Finest Wines

After yesterday’s excitement, why not take it slightly easier on Day 3 and enjoy a guided walk through glacial terrain, in the private hill-country estates of the Mount Aspiring National Park. The level of challenge (or ease) can be discussed with your guide, to perfectly match your expectations for the day ahead. Your multi-talented guide will prepare a gourmet cooked lunch to be shared around an open fire, alongside a selection of Central Otago wines and craft beer. Enjoy a relaxing final night regaling tales of the day’s events, with your nearest and dearest, in the privacy of your own home away from home.
