Your hosts for Peak Sport Chalet are Alex and Christine Schafer.
We moved to Wanaka from Germany in 2001 where we successfully established our self-contained Chalet and Bed and Breakfast business. Our slogan "Peak Sport Chalet, refreshingly different!" says it all. We have 2 children, Josephine and Lukas.
Alex is a passionate cross country skier and runner. He is in high demand during the Winter time with Ski National Teams from USA, Canada, Japan, Slovakia and Poland asking for his expertise as a Sports Massage Therapist. He also looks after many multi-sports athletes in summer.
Christine on the other hand, wears many hats. From a background in woodwork and banking, book publishing, to making guests feel very welcome, she surprises them with homemade goods wherever they turn.
We both look forward to meeting you and showing you the beautiful land of Wanaka.
Peak Sport Chalet is proud to announce that we have been awarded with the Qualmark Enviro-Bronze Award in October 2009 and certified by Sustainable Wanaka.
Lake Wanaka has implemented a sustainable tourism programme to protect its pristine surroundings. Environmentally aware travellers can visit Lake Wanaka safe in the knowledge that its tourism businesses actively support sustainability.
We at Peak Sport Chalet are committed to helping face the future with confidence. With waste minimising, recycling, and reducing cleaning material to a minimum we are focused on keeping our and your ‘carbon footprint’ low.
At the end of the day, it’s about responsibility. Responsibility in our daily business decisions, and responsibility to our environment and to future generations.
