Lake Kaniere - Kaniere

West Coast

  • Lake
  • Picnic Spot

Lake Kaniere is only 19kms inland from Hokitika. It is more of an action lake than Lake Mahinapua, but you can kick back and relax here too. It is a popular spot in summer for swimming, picnicking, water skiing, kayaking, fishing, walking and mountain biking. Arguably one of the country's most beautiful lakes, it is located in a scenic reserve surrounded on three sides by mountains that are capped in snow during winter.
