Maps & Guides

Hokitika township is located near the beach and its very compact. This means easy walking to explore our beach town. It's also surrounded by the Hokitika River to the South, the Tasman Sea to the West and the Southern Alps to the East so the view on your walk can be awesome in all directions.

Hokitika is about smack in the centre of the West Coast road along the Southern Alps, New Zealand making it your perfect West Coast base. It's easy days trips to Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers, Punakaiki's Pancake Rocks and Arthur's Pass. Travelling further than that? It's only 3 hours from Christchurch and only around a half day's drive to Nelson to the North and Wanaka to the South.

See below for maps and guides on the town, region and activities.
