Haast is the perfect base for nature lovers with eco tours and natural adventures to enjoy, and scenic walkways through the region's sand dune forests, riverbanks and native bush. You can also go hunting for thar, chamois and deer which roam over the dramatic mountains that surround Haast. There is horse trekking in the valleys or take a scenic drive to beautiful Jacksons Bay or the Cascade River Valley. The magnificent Haast Pass crosses over the Southern Alps, through Mount Aspiring National Park and down to Wanaka and the Southern Lakes region.
