Makarora River Ranch provides a convenient base for independent day walks in Mount Aspiring National Park. Discover longer hikes along river valleys tracks, through beech forest and waterfalls or challenging mountain hikes to Mount Brewster and Mount Shrimpton. There are several options for one-day walks that follow the tributaries of the Makarora River. We can also arrange guided trips on local walks including the stunning Blue Pools, Cameron Flat or Bridal Path or experience raw wilderness with a heli hiking trip into Mount Aspiring National Park.

Visit the Department of Conservation website for detailed descriptions of walks and hikes in the Makarora area suitable for all fitness levels.
