Getting There:

90 minutes north-east of Christchurch, perched high above the Greta Valley coastline. Your journey to the Atatū PurePod starts with a scenic drive through a beautiful and historic farming area. Take your time and enjoy the scenery, which switches from rolling farmland to forest and back to farmland again. At the carpark, leave your large luggage items in your locked car (it will be safe), then follow the 750m walking track as it firstly follows a farm track before gently winding its way up through the native bush.

Optional Activities:

Guides Farm Tour: Learn about the rich history dating back to 1850 on this one-hour drive through the farm as the farmer shares some of the challenges and triumphs of the original family settlers.

Mountain Bike Ride Trail Map: Off-Road looped 8km trail map with beautiful views towards the Hurunui River Mouth and the Pegasus Bay coastline.

E-Bike Hire: Enjoy the mountain bike trail with an E-Bike.

Every direction you look from the Atatū PurePod there are beautiful views, from the rolling hills dotted with sheep, to the snow-capped mountain views out the bathroom window, to the endless sea views.

The PurePod provides all your needs, from a fabulous shower and flush toilet to fresh linen and a well-equipped kitchen with a gas hob and barbecue. We also offer tea, coffee, and milk. Enjoy games, local books, and stargazing with a telescope. Relax in luxury camp chairs on the deck or lounge in the comfortable bed while nature entertains you.

"Thank you for giving us such a wonderful experience. This has been one of the top highlights of our entire trip. The view of the ocean when you wake up rivals no other. Also, the food we had here has been the best." Catherine & Peter, USA
