Okarito itself is a small coastal community located off Highway
6, between Whataroa and Franz Josef glacier, in an area that is
home to stunning scenery, fabulous sunsets, lush coastal forest and deserted beaches.
your stay, you can kayak on the Okarito Lagoon, home to white herons
(Kotuko) and paddle up estuarine rivers surrounded by rainforest.
Single and double kayaks are available to rent locally.
Alternatively, there are several beautiful hikes in the region,
such as up to the famous Okarito Trig, or along the beach to Three Mile
Lagoon, then back through the rainforest.
