Free guided walks with DoC rangers

Join a Department of Conservation ranger for a FREE 90-minute walk until 30th April 2019, either:

  • a morning walk around the Castle Hill area. You will learn about the geological origins of these natural limestone sculptures and their cultural significance to Ngāi Tahu; or
  • an afternoon walk to the Devil's Punchbowl - one of New Zealand's most stunning waterfalls. You will also learn about the history, flora and fauna of Arthur’s Pass.

Both walks require a low to moderate level of fitness, and appropriate footwear is essential. Both walks include a gradual incline, and the Devil's Punchbowl walk has numerous steps that some may find challenging.
