Waikato District

From safe swimming and exhilarating surf beaches to tranquil harbours and hot springs, the Waikato district is able to satisfy almost every recreational whim, year round. The west coast offers ideal conditions for fishing, windsurfing, hang-gliding and canoeing, while peaceful inland walkways and tracts of heritage wetland may be accessed on foot, horseback, motorcycle or mountain bike. In addition to the options available to the independent traveler, any number of tours enables visitors to enjoy the district's less accessible attributes..
