Okarito is a small, peaceful village on the western sea coast of the South Island.  Only 10km off the main highway, Okarito is about 25 minutes drive north of Franz Josef Glacier.  Look for the turn off between Lakes Mapourika and Wahapo.

Only around 20 people live here permanently.

Services include a Motel-Backpackers, Associate YHA, and an excellent camping ground, managed by the local community.

Okarito has good weather, ocean sea beaches and forest walks, including the renowned Okarito Trig view point.

Please bring supplies as there are no shops or banks!
