This majestic village lies in amongst some of the most challenging and trying mountain ranges in the Selwyn District.

Here you will find four ski fields located near the village and alongside the Craigieburn Range. There are also plenty of walking, mountain biking and tramping opportunities in these ranges and all the way down to the Korowai/Torlesse Tussock lands park.

If boulders are more your style, get amongst the adrenaline junkies and try your hand at rock climbing on the world renowned Castle Hill and Flock Hill limestone boulder field. If this happens to be on your bucket list, you are in luck. For the less enthusiastic, simply go for a wander and find an area to set up a picnic spot.

From Castle Hill you can admire the beauty of Selwyn.
