Why us?

For decades people from all over the world have flocked to Hanmer Springs to relax and enjoy natural thermal pools. The water in the thermal pools starts as snow and rain falling on the Hanmer Springs mountains. It seeps into the Greywacke basement rock and comes to rest in a reservoir some two kilometres underground, where it is warmed by heat radiating from the earth’s core. Today, the water is drawn to the surface and used for bathing and heating purposes. So sit back, relax, and enjoy what nature created all those years ago!

Hanmer Springs is an Alpine Village 90 minutes North of Christchurch. It is a perfect place to relax and enjoy nature. The village itself has a number of eateries and accommodation options as well as fantastic networks of walking and mountain biking tracks. We recommend staying 1 -2 nights to fully connect to nature and recharge.
