Twizel is a handy base for explorations of Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park and the Mackenzie Basin. From mountain climbing to heli-biking, it's all here.

The peaks and trails of Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park are just up the road. You can fish for salmon and trout in the local rivers, canals and lakes. If you don't have any luck, call into the salmon farm and buy a fish – fresh or smoked.

With five lakes, rivers, picturesque canals, bicycle and walking tracks, and ski fields all nearby, there's plenty to do in the Twizel area.
