A little over an hour's drive west from Christchurch along Arthur's Pass, Castle Hill Village is nestled between Craigieburn Forest Park and Korowai-Torlesse Tussocklands Park. The Castle Hill Basin and Craigieburn range offer fantastic summer and winter recreation; climbing, caving skiing, walking, fishing and mountain biking. World renowned Castle Hill Rocks conservation area offer great bouldering and climbing in the enchanting limestone boulder fields. The area is easily accessed and popular year round. There are five main areas totally about 250 different climbs.

Cave Stream Scenic Reserve is one of Canterbury's outstanding natural features. If care is taken, it is possible to walk through the cave to marvel at the waterfall and deep pool.

Ski Areas include Porters and Cheeseman, great family fields, within 15 minutes drive and the club fields of Broken River and Craigieburn, for the more daring, are 20 minutes away. Mt Olympus and Mt Hutt are a little further away.

The tramping in the area is outstanding. There are many wonderfully marked out tracks of varying lengths. Lake Lyndon, which is located very close to Castle Hill, is gorgeous, and has picnic sites and walking trails and, of course, you can water ski, boat and kayak as well.

The Hogs Back mountain bike track is a fantastic new 8 km track in the Castle Hill Basin that links to the well known Craigieburn ride.

If however you are looking for a slightly slower pace this is a stunning area just to soak up, relax and chill out. There are four wonderful high country lakes just perfect for fishing. The flora and fauna is fascinating and many rare and wonderful things are just waiting to be discovered. The village has a children's playground, tennis court, petanque area and a very basic nine hole golf course. Castle Hill Village is really friendly and a safe environment for children.
