Hokitika Gorge

Excellent views over the Hokitika River

Time: 15 minutes return

Grade: Easy

Start: Just past Hokitika Gorge Cafe on Whitcombe Valley Road Get Google Maps directions

The Hokitika Gorge Scenic Reserve is 33 km east of Hokitika. Leave Hokitika's main road by turning inland onto Stafford St which become Kaniere Rd, then Kaniere-Kowhitirangi Rd. South of Kokatahi the road turns sharp left, then sharp right. Turn left into Johnston Rd, right into Nielson Rd, and left into Whitcombe Valley Rd.

This track has an awesome viewing platform just 4 minutes into the walk but make sure you do the entire 15 minute track. There are excellent views of the blue-green waters of the Hokitika River as it makes its way through the rock sided Hokitika Gorge.

5 stars. We booked at Auckland airport. We got picked up literally as we stepped out of airport. Friendly staff took our info and gave us the car keys(near new Rav4). Super simple process and car was in great condition. While dropping the car back Took them 2 minutes to inspect the car and without waiting we got dropped back to airport. Great price and they don't charge anything extra like cleaning etc. I would highly recommend them.
