Full Day including Lunch
Price from £148 per person
A Wilderness Adventure, consisting of a moderately challenging hike over uneven surfaces. Ideal for those who enjoy walking & photography. This day will take you into tranquil & remote pristine Rainforest surrounded by giant rock faces, rugged Volcanic peaks, ancient Kauri, Rimu and Rata trees. Wonder at the world's largest tree ferns, crystal clear Rivers & rock pools.
The day starts with a walk through beautiful regenerating Kauri forest full of fern trees and along the old tracks of Puketui, the 1890's gold mining town. You will see sparkling glow worms in old gold caves while enjoying a hike through remnants of the mining days, which have now been given back to nature. After a delicious lunch wade the Tairua River, hike over farmland and enter into remote forest with its crystal clear rock pools surrounded by lush semi-tropical rainforest. The track then leads into spectacular flora with giant ferns, palms, ancient Kauri, and Rata trees. This is a step back in time with vegetation as ancient as the dinosaurs. Follow the creek into a hidden valley, past volcanic rock walls rising 200 metres. At a magic pool in the creek you can enjoy a swim in the deep crystal clear pools before heading home.
