Misty Peaks

Enjoy a day out in the 500 hectares of Misty Peaks Reserve. 

Home to a number of native birds, lizards and rare plants, the reserve is a beautiful spot to picnic, relax or walk.

The Misty Peaks Reserve Track heads along the crest of Akaroa's ancient volcanic rim. There are spectacular coastal and harbour views and attractive rural landscapes in all directions.

The reserve shares its facilities with both walkers and cyclists so be courteous and respectful to all users.
