Bookings not required - first come, first served
Before you go, buy 1 Standard Hut Ticket (blue for adults, yellow for youth) for each night's stay. Put this in the honesty box at the hut. Or buy a Backcountry Hut Pass that gives unlimited use at most Standard and Serviced huts for a 6 or 12 month period.
Kapakapanui Hut is best accessed and approximately 3 hours from Ngatiawa Road.
