Come explore Methven!

Posted on November 29, 2018 at 11:55 PM

Methven is just off highway 72 and is the perfect place to visit for a weekend getaway out of the city or a stop on an iconic NZ road trip. Known for its winter fun on the ski hills, Methven has just as much to offer all year round.

The town has a friendly and relaxed vibe without a shortage of adventure. From jet boating, to tramping, horse trekking, scenic flights, mountain biking and hot air ballooning, Methven and the surrounding areas really do have it all. The town isn’t huge but it is filled with lots of cafes to choose from and restaurants with all sorts of menus.

Methven is surrounded by a beautiful patchwork of farmer’s fields, braided rivers and rugged mountain tops. The area is nothing but inspiring to make you want to get outside and experience New Zealand’s raw beauty. A cluster of high country lakes can be found only about 45 minutes away. A 25 minute drive takes you to waterfall. 50 minutes and you’re on a set from Lord of the Rings. You can see Mt Hutt from the town square. What could be better?

For those travelling, choose the scenic highway 72 for your adventures. Stop in Methven for a night or two! Have a meal at one of the pubs and immerse yourself in Kiwi life right away. The locals are friendly and can point you in the right direction no problem. It is the best way to see the heart of Canterbury and have a good local experience.

There is something for everyone in Methven. It is unlike any other part of the country.

Come to Methven to explore, to relax and get outdoors!
