Te Araroa – The ultimate New Zealand adventure!! ❤
This track is our top to bottom New Zealand hiking track. If you are a hiker this is one of the best ways you could experience the country. If you have the time to do at all, jump at it, if not, hiking parts of it or hiking it in sections is equally as amazing and it will take you on an amazing journey that will get you to the heartbeat of this country.
As it stands I’ve recently completed my third stint on the Te Araroa as a kiwi section hiker. To date I’ve hiked the 2012-2013, 2014-2015, and 2015-2016 seasons.
The sections I’ve covered so far include; Cape Reinga – Waitomo, Tongariro Crossing, Palmerston North – Levin, Wellington City, Picton – St Arnaud – Blue Lake (and alternate route through Molesworth Station to Hanmer Springs), Tekapo – Twizel, Wanaka – Motutapu Track, Franklin – Queenstown, and other bitsy bobs….
