Freestone Backpackers

Small, unique, peaceful, with a rustic look, Freestone is a true Fiordland experience. Set in 10 acres of tree studded hillside with breathtaking views of Lake Manapouri and mountains from everywhere on the property and almost no sandflies, it’s heaven for nature lovers. Choose from one of our unique, homebuilt, cosy, spacious timber lodges with own kitchen, solar lighting and wood burner, or book the holiday house - great for groups and families. It is the perfect base to discover all that Fiordland has to offer: Doubtful and Milford Sound cruises, kayaking, tramping the Kepler, Milford, and Dusky tracks among others, fishing, hunting, boating, or simply as food for the soul.

We are happy to help you to plan your holiday here and offer free bookings for all activities in Fiordland.
