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.


Market Place & Restaurants

Enjoy the Market Place with its spacious pedestrian-only layout. There are excellent cafés, cool and quirky shops and large kakī (black stilt) bird public artworks.

Local tip: Twizel’s town centre also boasts an awesome playground, including an always-popular real-life tractor.


Explore Lake Ruataniwha

Looking for a new way to get out on the water? Try paddle-boarding on Lake Ruataniwha – a great way to be active and enjoy some stunning views!

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!
