At Hotel Lake Brunner you will experience unparalleled views across both the lake and the Southern Alps of New Zealand from the comfort of your room, with plenty of opportunity to get out and explore within the Moana village. The village hosts several walks through native bush, including the Rakatane swing bridge walk crossing the Kotuku Awa/Arnold river, and the Velenski track which at night is lit up by glow-worms.
