Hiking & Walking Vacations

Separated from the rest of the world for millions of years, New Zealand retained ancient forests and unique birds. Couple this to the most spectacular scenery on earth, and it is time to get off the beaten track.

Private guides can introduce you to the wonders of New Zealand's walking trails or simply stroll alone in the lodge grounds before dinner. Whether you want to disappear into the bush for an overnight walk or hike one of the famous tramping trails the Lodges can introduce you to some of the finest walking in the world.
