8. カネーリ湖 Lake Kaniere
With Christmas finished, we headed up to nearby Lake Kaniere (pronounced 'canary' by the locals). Here we rented a bach (holiday house in NZ) for 3 nights. This place is in the wilderness. There are no shops and few spots where you can use a cell phone. While here, everyday we went mountain biking, jet skiing, took walks, ate delicious food and just relaxed.
