Rate this Adventure New Zealand Hokitika Gorge

Added by Lauren Schusterman

The gorge is a quick drive from Hokitika town with unbelievably blue water. 

From the carpark follow the signs to the gorge. The trail goes through the forest for approximately 10 minutes downhill before reaching the swing bridge which spans the gorge. After the bridge you can continue walking down to another viewing platform and opportunity to go further down, closer to the water. Return to the car park via the same trail.

Pack List

Hike to Robert's Point (Franz Josef Glacier)

New Zealand / Franz Josef Glacier Trailhead

This trail is one of my favorite in New Zeanand. It wasn't so much 'built' as it was 'discovered'. The trail follows natural erosion and clean exposed flows of glacier carved granite walkways.

Hike to the Fox Glacier

New Zealand / Fox Glacier Carpark

From the carpark follow the well marked trail to the toe of the Fox Glacier. Do not stray from the trail as unstable ice and moraine can be very dangerous.
