Hunting, fishing, skiing, bungy jumping, quad bikes, claybird shooting ... there's a long list of thrills to get your heart pumping.

If you have a need for a little more speed there’s jetboating, white water rafting, quad biking or four wheel driving – or take the leap for real and try bungy jumping!

If keeping your feet on the ground is more your style, head for the Weka Pass Railway, where steam and diesel locomotives will take you on a 12.8 kilometre scenic ride through the unique limestone beauty of the Weka Pass. 

What’s more, our activities offer up a feast for the eyes. But that's what you'd expect in an alpine village with Mother Nature’s playground on its doorstep. 

Head to the mountains and hike, ski and snowboard to your heart's content.  Mountain bike, 4-wheel drive or hike through the surrounding forests. Head to the Waiau Gorge and make the most of its stunning river with jetboating, bungy-jumping, rafting and fishing all on offer there.

Hanmer Springs' i-SITE information centre next to the thermal pools is your one-stop-shop for information on all the activities available.
