Upper Hutt, who knew?


Let us set the scene. Upper Hutt has fresh air, friendly people, and thrilling outdoor adventures. At every turn, you’ll encounter nature, greenery and the opportunity to create life-long memories.

Adventure seekers are right at home here. The hills surrounding Upper Hutt are full of mountain biking and walking trails. Explore pristine river valleys, native forests, and steep craggy hillsides. For something truly memorable, try the Remutaka Cycle Trail. One of New Zealand’s premier rides, the historic trail weaves its way through abandoned railway tunnels and over the Remutaka Ranges.

The white waters of the mighty Te Awa Kairangi Hutt River provide the setting for an exciting day on the rapids with Wellington Rafting. Experts guide you as you paddle the gnarly upper section of the river. For a more subdued activity, walk or ride the banks of the lower river along the scenic Hutt River Trail.
