  • The Putangirua Pinnacles were on the list of our New Zealand tour from the beginning. This location is hardly known to most tourists and the location is further away from the classic routes. We were definitely thrilled by this great natural spectacle. As is so often the case on the Neusseeland tour: this location is ultimately further away from the parking lot than you think and further than indicated. We should have planned a lot more time in planning your trip. In the end, it takes about 45-60 minutes to finally arrive at the Pinnacles. A first look can be taken on the Pinnacles after about 20-30 minutes during the short hike. Tip: it can get very warm/hot in the valley basin in the high season. Definitely enough to drink with you! The parking lot is ultimately also a campsite. Here we would have liked to stay longer, because the parking lot is located directly on the dreamlike coast.
