Haast on NZ’s West Coast

Haast is surrounded by natural rainforest and bushland so there are numerous walks and photo opportunities to capture the beauty of the area. The river is renowned for trout and salmon fishing or whitebaiting and we are famous as a destination for great hunting.There is so much to do here for those who love seeing and experiencing nature at its best. Go on a fishing or hunting trip, a jet boat river safari, numerous scenic walks or see it all from above with a scenic helicopter ride. You can explore our amazing beach, the penguin colony, walk along the riverbanks, or just relax in the sun and read a book. Nowhere is as special for seeing a sky full of stars at night, and with the rugged scenery, amazing sunsets and clean fresh air, Haast is definitely not just a ‘drive through’. The gateway to Fiordland and Queenstown to the south and Fox Glacier and Franz Joesf to the north, it is a very special place and well worth the stop and stay.
