Pure Adventure

Your adventure, your way. 

Adventure is personal; for some it’s jumping out of or off something, squeezing into tight spaces or embracing the feeling of free-falling but no matter what your adventure preference is, everyone has one thing in common. It’s about doing something brave, something you’ll never forget … taking that step into the unknown and feeling alive, inspired and ready to take on anything.

In the Waitaki, we have our own special kind of adventure that you’ll find nowhere else. Cycle New Zealand’s longest and most spectacular cycle trail, spend some time on our braided river system or see it all from above in a glider or Heli-flight.

The name says it all; start at Aoraki Mt Cook in the heart of the stunning Southern Alps or the equally beautiful Lake Tekapo Village and wind your way round mountains, deep-blue lakes and canals, then rolling farmland before meeting the Pacific Ocean on the edge of Oamaru Harbour.
