Fodor's Review

Imagine being like a bird, able to wander the treetops of the ancient trees in the West Coast rain forest. Now you can, on this 1,500-foot long, 66-foot-high walkway through the forest canopy. You can go even higher on the Hokitika Tower, 130 feet above the forest floor. Views extend over the rain forest to dark, glacial Lake Mahinapua and beyond to the Southern Alps. The walkway is fully wheelchair-accessible. An excellent café and gift shop are on-site. It's a 15-minute drive south of Hokitika, and just off the main road.
