Departing from Auckland, you will explore some of the highlights of Coromandel on foot and enjoy culinary experiences during the tour. Walk one of the finest remaining Kauri groves in North Island, feast your eyes upon the white sand beaches while marvelling Waihi Beach, summit Wairere Falls and enjoy a 'paddock-to-plate' food experience at a local award-winning bistro. Led by a local guide and accompanied by a small group with a maximum of 8 people, you'll experience the breathtaking beauty of the Coromandel Peninsula in comfort over three incredible days.
White sand beaches, turquoise waters, lush valleys, laid-back vibe and endless charisma, the Coromandel Peninsula is renowned for its natural beauty and is an ideal place to escape. Travelling in a luxury van, you will enjoy easy to moderate graded day walks over three days. Venture into a spectacular grove of Kauri trees on Day 1. These Kauris have been protected since before the turn of the century and are truly magnificent. On Day 2, walk from secluded Homunga Bay through dense pohutukawa forest and arrive at white sand Waihi Beach, a bustling and authentic Kiwi beach to relax and unwind. On the final day, you'll weave your way through moss covered rocks and tree roots, and climb to the top of Wairere Falls, where you will be rewarded with the spectacular views of the water plunging 153 metres, making it the highest waterfall on the North Island.
The tour also includes some unique gastronomic experiences such as sampling velvety gelato made from full-cream jersey cow milk fed on lush local pastures, and visiting a local fifth-generation, family owned and operated winery for award-winning wine tasting.
The walk is fully catered. You will stay at a country style boutique lodge tucked away in the beautiful Kauaeranga Valley where you can also relax in the hot tub or take a swim in the nearby river. Then enjoy a gourmet three-course meal every night matched with New Zealand wine or beer.
This is a fully guided and all inclusive walking tour. Guided by experienced local guides, you'll walk 3 - 5 hours each day. With our hiking support, you'll only need to carry a day pack giving you more time to immerse yourself in the magnificent natural beauty.
Three days and three beautiful and diverse guided walks for your soul. A relaxing getaway with everything nature has to offer. Words like unspoiled and paradise will spring to mind at the end of the walking holiday.
