Private Walking Track New Zealand Guided Walking Tours Kaikoura

Exclusive 3 day guided New Zealand hiking & nature tours on a spectacular South Island private walking track.

Kaikoura Wilderness Walks -
a unique private walking track in New Zealand

Kaikoura Wilderness Walks operates on a private walking track through the Puhi Peaks Nature Reserve located on the east coast of New Zealand's South Island .This is a protected Significant Area of International Importance, renowned as a haven for a diverse array of rare and endangered native species of New Zealand flora and fauna.

Kaikoura Wilderness Walks offers an 3 day/2 night guided walk/hike and nature tour with overnight accommodation at the luxurious, eco- friendly Shearwater Lodge.

You will find many reasons why this exclusive New Zealand guided walk is so deserving of the acclaim it receives, but the fact that a maximum of 12 visitors share in the walk at any one time makes it particularly appealing to those seeking 'the ultimate wilderness experience.'

Guests are treated to an authentic and sensory wilderness encounter, complemented by delicious meals and luxurious accommodation in an outstanding alpine environment.

The guided walk is a total holistic wilderness experience traversing 3 distinct eco-systems over 3 days. The local, knowledgeable guides ensure a suitable walking pace is maintained throughout with frequent stops to describe the abundant flora and fauna that can be seen.

The walk starts at the historic Puhi Peaks Station and traverses beech, fern and ancient totara forests before emerging on to alpine meadows with sweeping vistas of the seaward Kaikoura mountain range. Here you will catch your first glimpse of Shearwater Lodge, set at an elevation of 1000 metres, in a spectacular valley in an outstanding alpine environment.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful land with us, awe inspiring mountains, vegetation and animals and that is before you get to our hosts relaxed friendly and dedicated to giving us an experience that we wanted ! Thanks again.

I have been dreaming about this trip for months and it has certainly lived up to all my expectations. I adored my room- such luxury, lovely meals and wine, great company and the second day will rank up there with one of the best experiences I have ever had. Thanks to all. A& CM Papamoa Beach, NZ
