“It's only a short walk to the famous Blue Pools. And then just a short jump in!”

Nestled among mature beech and podocarp forest, these pools of deep, clear water flowing into the Makarora River offer a moment of tranquillity. An short and easy walk leads to these natural wonders of pure glacial water gathered from the mountains. Walk through beech forest to a swing bridge over Makarora River, then continue on a boardwalk to the second swing bridge, which is the viewing platform over the Blue Pools. It's a perfect spot for a picnic, a paddle, or if you're feeling particularly brave, a jump off the bridge and into the beautiful (and freezing) water.
