Outdoorsy people, if you haven’t gone glamping yet, what are you waiting for? Glamping (read glamourous + camping) is the perfect solution when you’re looking for a place that takes camping to the next level. Glamping sites provide everything you need – including an actual bed – so leave the tent, sleeping bag and cooking gear at home. You’ll be comfortably ensconced in the great outdoors, with native birds for neighbours. You might even hear or spot kiwi hunting for food by the light of the moon.
With access to this stunning bush-clad lake-edge glamping site only by boat or three-hour hike, and set on your own private beach, Kanuka could be one of the most stunning off-the-beaten-path campsites in New Zealand.
Enjoy a piece of New Zealand history. This gorgeous 1930s shepherd's hut is sited on a hill overlooking beautiful Lake Tarawera. Get back to nature and take in the birdsong and breathtaking views across the lake and volcano.
