Mountain Transport

New for Winter 2016 – Cardrona’s Wanaka Bus Service

Look out for the big orange bus! This winter we’re offering our own bus service that will pick up from a couple of Wanaka hotels & Cardrona Corner (20 Helwick St, Wanaka) on the way up the mountain!

Our new ‘Buy 10 get 1 free’ pass is perfect if you’re getting the most out of your season pass! Once you have your pass all you need to do is phone Cardrona Corner (03 443 4512) to book dates of travel. Keep your booking reference number handy to make reservations.
