Hot Tubs Omarama
Weary travellers mustn't miss Hot Tubs Omarama place, where you can soak in a cedar tub in the stunning North Otago landscape. Tubs fit up to eight people and are filled with fresh mountain water for each booking.
For a nice walk, a bit of bouldering or both, head to Elephant Rocks. Sculpted by wind and rain, these funky outcrops give visitors a glimpse of the limestone that make the Waitaki Valley’s terroir so unique.
Possibly our most bikeable region, the Waitaki is home to plenty of rugged scenery and flat to not-so-flat cycleways. Get your gear sorted and check out the tours that range from day trips to the full A2O at Cycle Ventures.
Blue Penguin Colony
Watch several hundred blue penguins return home from a day at sea, after learning about what’s being done to protect these cute critters. It’s one of the most up close and personal wildlife encounters you’ll find in New Zealand.
