Shuttles & Parking

Shuttle service to the Lewis Pass end of the St James walkway and other local tracks/valleys in the Lewis Pass Area.
The shuttle is done in the client’s vehicle.
We are not able to shuttle rental vehicles for insurance reasons, but parking for these is available.
We also provide reasonably secure parking at the Centre for vehicles whilst the owners are away.
Sorry we are unable to do pick-ups.

Te Araroa Services

Long distance hikers and trampers on the Te Araroa trail will pass right by the Boyle River Outdoor Education Centre. After 6 or 7 days travel over the second highest point on the trail and another 6 or 7 days ahead on the way to Arthur's Pass, you will probably be ready for a re-supply and a rest!

‘Southbounders’ will arrive at the Boyle from the Waiau Pass track and ‘Northbounders’ from the Harper Pass Track.The trails finish at a car park and bus shelter just off SH 7 next to the Boyle River Outdoor Education Centre. There are no shops or villages between St Arnaud and Arthurs Pass, which is quite a few days without a re-supply! So we may be able to help you...

We offer backpacker accommodation with hot showers; food parcel storage; clothes washing; some basic supplies.


Nestled between the Sylvia Tops and the Libretto Range, our Lodge is a great place to bring school or community groups, for a corporate retreat, or simply to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
It is wheelchair accessible and all at ground floor level though much of the ground outside is shingle or uneven.
It is heated by heat pumps.
