Hokitika is a quirky little town with a whole lot to offer, whether you want to sample some local history, plunge headfirst into outdoor adventure, feast on fantastic food or simply relax around town. There’s always more to Hoki than meets the eye.
The beauty of Hokitika is that nothing is too far away. You can walk or bike to access beautiful local tracks and trails all year round. If you want to roam more widely, car rental can be organised at Hokitika Airport (five minutes from the CBD). The Hokitika Fire Station Apartments are a great stepping off point for road trips to the Hokitika Gorge and other West Coast attractions. For the more daring, there are scenic flights to Mount Cook and the Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers.
