This historic stone hut in the spectacular Matukituki Valley is a great overnight tramp for families with children or those new to tramping.


Sometime after August 2022 Aspiring Hut will be closed for a period of some months.

The exact time and date is not yet confirmed. An alert will be added to this webpage when the closure dates are known.

If the closure is during the booking period your booking will be cancelled and refunds provided. NZAC and DOC apologise for any inconvenience this causes.
