We are currently taking Expressions of Interest for our NZ North Island Hiking Explore Fitness Adventure for November 2021.
This trip will immerse us in the beauty of The North Island of New Zealand.
We start in Auckland and head South to Rotorua where we hike beside the splendid Lake Tarawera. There are plenty of nice swimming spots and a natural hot river flowing out of the bush to soak in.
We enjoy an overnight hike into the magical Whirinaki Forest. This ancient Whirinaki rainforest is a remnant of the vast forests believed to have covered the super-continent of Gondwanaland more than 150 million years ago. We stay the night at a hut beside the Whirinaki River.
Lower down the valley we hike beneath giant tree ferns and some of New Zealand’s tallest podocarp rainforest.
We hike in the Waikato area and The Waikato is New Zealand’s longest river and starts at Lake Taupo. Later we arrive at Lake Taupo, the largest lake in New Zealand.
We will view the famous Huka Falls.
We spend a full day hiking on the famous Tongariro Alpine Crossing, regarded as one of the best day walks in the world. The track is generally (but not always) well-made and there is a gradual ascent up to the summit of the crossing at approximately 1900m, with the occasional steeper section.
We visit the Waitomo Caves before returning to Auckland for our return flight home.
Registering your interest is simply that – there is no obligation. You will be the first to receive the updates when more information becomes available.
