Speckled with boutique shops, cute cafes, abundant accommodation options and a wonderful range of outdoor and family activities, pictorial Hanmer Springs is an ideal campervan holiday destination. Hanmer Springs is a great destination in any season and on my trip, I enjoyed lots of exciting activities from hot pools, skiing to white water rafting and forest walks. Sparkling rivers, the famed natural hot springs and mighty mountains make Hanmer Springs a gorgeous holiday destination throughout the year.
The Waiau River offers plentiful water-based activities such as fishing, rafting and jet boating. Discover this fascinating region with campervan hire. The neighboring mountains and hills provide lots of opportunities for mountain biking, hunting, Bungee-jumping, hiking, horse-riding, farm tours and skiing at the Hanmer Springs Ski Area or Mt Lyford.
Hanmer Springs is famed for its excellent thermal pools, but I stayed here for a few days to determine what else is on offer in this spectacular alpine village. Once you visit this region, trust me you wouldn’t want to leave!
When I visited the South Island of New Zealand I felt slightly dejected with the likelihood of snow and the dipping temperatures. If you escape the monotonous routine and getaway during the winter why don’t you benefit from the cold and arrange a weekend at a nice destination with a campervan? Hanmer Springs is the perfect winter destination with lots of exciting winter activities to take part in.
Constructed around the hot springs, Hanmer’s foremost tourist attraction is its hot pools. The sulphur and thermal pools offer a relaxing experience to guests. I had a great time pampering myself with the massage services in this region. Couples can enjoy the private thermal pools while families can benefit from the waterslides and AquaPlay Area.
As the Garden City is nearby people prefer to book a campervan in Christchurch as their transportable accommodation during their stay in Hanmer. There are quite a few holiday parks available at reasonable rates to park your campervan. Relish the mouthwatering food at the Cafe and bar located on Jollies Pass Road, Chantellinis Restaurant or the famed Powerhouse CafÃ© positioned on Jacks Pass Road.
A NZ tour is incomplete without an excursion to the slopes. Hanmer Springs Ski Area offers lots of trails for skiing aficionados.
After a day of frenzied skiing, I headed back to town for its excellent cuisine and the beauty therapy treatment followed by a dip in the lavish thermal pools.
Hanmer Springs offers lots of opportunities to sample delicious NZ food and wine, as it is close to the wine destination of Waipara on the North Canterbury Food & Wine Trail.
