Spring into Action

Time to tackle NZ’s bucketlist hikes!

Pick your adventure and sleep with comfort at Haka Lodges.

Are you thinking of heading to the hills this Spring/Summer and ticking off some of those must-do NZ hikes?

Whether it’s the 4-day Milford Track, the challenging one-day Tongariro Crossing or a simple beach walk at Takapuna, there is so much to explore. Plus with few international travellers in the country currently, it’s the perfect time to take advantage of the quieter trails.

Combine a hike with a stay at Haka Lodges and your trip will be complete! With our premium backpacker accommodations dotted around the country – Paihia, Auckland, Taupō and Queenstown you can ensure a comfortable night’s sleep at the start and finish of your expedition.

Located close to the city centre and kitted out with top of the line facilities, our popular Queenstown Lodge is an absolute stunner, so come and experience this award-winning lodge for yourself this winter.
