“A relaxed mountain town, with stunning scenery and a welcoming vibe.”

On the southern end of Lake Wanaka, situated in a dramatic glacial carved basin, is the stunning resort town of Wanaka with an active, friendly atmosphere. The World’s First Protected Lifestyle Reserve, with a population of just 7,000, it’s a spectacular natural playground and if you are into the outdoors, there is no better place to visit or to host GODZone. Wanaka is one of New Zealand’s premier gateways to the outdoors. With four ski resorts, a wide selection of mountain bike trails, endless walks and hikes over iconic trails, an abundance of water sports, and the Mt Aspiring National Park just up the road, outdoor enthusiasts are spoiled for choice.

Wanaka hosts some of New Zealand’s best events and was the finish location for Eco Challenge back in 2001. With the course options available, history and community love of sport, it’s going to be another incredible adventure for everyone involved. Find out more about the Host Location.

Each team carries a satellite tracking devices which reveals their positions, route choices, navigational mistakes and makes for compelling viewing.
