• Mirrored mountain reflections
• Vertical waterfall
• Pretty stoney shoreline

Loch (n) = Lake (Scottish)

Hold your ultimate Wanaka wedding ceremony by the picturesque Lochnagar. This remote alpine lake or ‘loch’ is reached by helicopter and surrounded by mountains at the head of the Shotover Valley. Experience the bliss of solitude as your helicopter shuts down and you stand by your partner at the lakes edge.

On a calm day the crystal clear water reflects the peaks and fleeting clouds. In winter the location transforms into a winter wonderland with snow on the ‘beach’ and the lake freezing over!

We love the privacy of this very protected and remote location.

Your Wanaka wedding charter flight allows up to 1hr at Lochnagar for your ceremony and / or photos, giving you plenty of time to create memories to cherish for a lifetime

If you are looking for a variety of backdrops for your ceremony and photos combine a landing here with a second landing somewhere different like Coromandel Peak or contact us for options.
