Raetihi is small and struggling, obviously only sustained by travellers stopping over to ski in winter or canoe the river in summer.
Most of the shops are closed and for sale but there are hidden gems such as the Angel Louise cafe, a friendly welcoming space on the main street with good coffee, food and wifi.
Well worth a visit.
