Hanmer Springs Activities and Adventures

Hanmer Springs in New Zealand offers visitors a vast array of experiences and adventures beyond the Hanmer thermal pool complex.

For the adrenalin junky, there is jet-boating, river-rafting, canyoning, bungy jumping, mountain biking, 4WD quad-bike safaris and in the winter, snow skiing.

Hanmer Springs is best known for its hot springs and associated thermal reserve Hanmer pools and baths, but for the more adventurous, activities such as hunting, fishing, bungy jumping, jet boating, rafting and quad bike riding. For those looking for a quieter experience, Hanmer Springs NZ offers a very pleasant golf course, forest walks, village cruisers, guided bus tours of Molesworth Station (NZ's largest farming icon).

For the fisherman, local rivers boast excellent trout and salmon fishing. But, no matter how you spend your day, at the end of it, a visit to the thermal pools is a perfect way to unwind and relax on your Hanmer holiday.
