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!
