Hokitika Gorge Walk, Hokitika

(4.9/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Pay a visit to Hokitika Gorge Walk, where the Hokitika River wends its way through a rocky canyon surrounded by lush foliage of native trees. Hit the well-defined and well-marked walking trail in the area to make your way through the gorge's bountiful nature to its several vantage points. Don't worry about equipping yourself with any special walking gear other than comfortable shoes, as the stroll is a short and non-strenuous one. Be sure to bring your camera, as the area's suspension bridge affords an attractive view over the river's bright turquoise waters.

  • Short easy walk and you can soak in the raw beauty of New Zealand. The water in the gorge is a beautiful teal. Very pretty.  more »
  • Great little walk and very pretty. The only downside was driving for longer than walking. Still worth doing if you are looking for something to do.  more »
  • We decided to do this on our way out of town, and it was worth the extra time to drive inland. Beautiful turquoise water, delightful bridge. Don't miss it.  more »
