The perfect weekend or midweek getaway
One of the greatest advantages of the South Island Spirit Loop is its accessibility. Regardless of your point of origin and how much time you have, you can start your adventure anywhere along the route. Below is a quick itinerary of a wonderful day in Langford.
If you can start your day anywhere in Langford, visiting or overnight camping at Goldstream Park is a must. It’s beautiful and natured setting is matched only by its proximity to some of the best hiking in the area. For a great morning and unparalleled views, a hike up Mount Finlayson is an absolute must.
Whether you have stayed overnight or getting at it bright and early after a morning hike, Origin Bakery is a great place to start. While it’s best known for its 100% gluten-free treats, Origin Bakery appeals to all. It’s the perfect place to pick up a few treats to accompany your morning coffee from Dagwood’s Cafe, Serious Coffee or even Timmie’s, for the adventures ahead.
Once you’ve digested some of your tasty morning treats from Origin Bakery, it’s time to test your skills and Langford’s Boulder House. Whether you’re an experienced climber or trying it for the first time, Boulder has a wall just for you. Both a physical and mental challenge, the Boulder House is great fun for couples or the whole family. How high can you go??
After a few hours scaling the colourful walls of Boulder House, it’s probably time to relax and soothe those tired muscles in the pristine waters of Langford Lake. Surrounded by great beaches and parks, Langford Lake is the perfect spot to stop for a picnic or spend the day frolicking in the water.
