Rawhiti Backpackers has sunny, park like grounds with tranquil views overlooking the village only a few minutes walk away. All beds are fully made up and to quote many guests "the best night sleep I have had for weeks!"

Nature walks are within the village with Talbot Forest only 5 minutes away. There are many walks and hikes in Peel Forest 15 minutes away. In the summer there is canyoning, white water rafting, horse riding, 4x4 adventures, and kayaking. In the winter we are only 30 to 60 minutes from three commercial ski fields (also many private ones), and 75 minutes away from Lake Tekapo with its hot pools, and wonderful Mt John Observatory.

We are a BBH member. Join up and get discount on accommodation, buses, and many attractions.
