Known as one of New Zealand’s classic hikes, this 29 km walk is a unique hike through private land that follows farmland and forest, over an extinct volcano, along coasts and cliffs, through reserves and into your hosts backyards. It is 29 km of ever changing vistas, views and variety around the stunning Banks Peninsula.
We stay in accommodation that reflects the personality of each night’s hosts, offering rustic comfort, history, warmth and character. Our packs are transported for us, we just need a day pack. There are a maximum of 16 on the track so it will never be crowded!
At the end of the track we stay the night in the quaint historic French and British settlement of Akaroa with a free half day to explore more of this charming little town.
