Twizel Accommodation



Twizel River Trail

Stroll by the beautiful and peaceful Twizel River and find a shady spot to sit and relax or enjoy a picnic. The full Twizel River Trail is 24 kilometres return, but shorter sections are just as rewarding. The trail is easy for children and is baby buggy friendly.

Local tip: The Twizel River has some great swimming spots – on a hot day, find the perfect swimming hole to cool off.

Explore Lake Ruataniwha

Local tip: SUP-ing not your thing? Kayaks are available, too, if you prefer to tackle water sports sitting down.


Alps to Ocean Cycle Trail

Cycle a portion of the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail. The section by Lake Pukaki is relatively easy and particularly beautiful for a day outing.

Local tip: Several local companies offer bike hire and shuttle services to support riders on a day trip on the A2O. They’ll take care of all the details – just show up and enjoy the ride!
