The Hokitika Gorge has been created by the Hokitika River situated in the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. The river is about 64 kilometers long, beginning in the Southern Alps, emerging from the narrow Hokitika Gorge.
What to do:
The Hokitika Gorge Walk is an easy path of only 15mins each way descending through hardwood forest.
The walk will give you a lookout of the gorge and of Kowhitirangi farmland, the track will lead you to a swingbridge which crosses the Hokitika Gorge taking you over the magnificent green/blue waters of the Hokitika River. The track continue up to another lookout of the gorge, upstream of the bridge.
When to go:
For me the best time to visit the Hokitika Gorge is in Autumn when you have the big contrast from the blue water and the color of the trees.
