Rakaia Gorge Walkway

Well, what a wee gem that was! A 3.5 hour return walk passing snow capped mountains and the bright blue Rakaia river. Definitely worth the slog getting up the hill to the upper viewpoint. If you want a shorter walk the lower viewpoint also offers amazing views. If you’re feeling adventurous have you can whiz down the river on the famous jet boat!



En route to the walkway near Methven.
