Forest and Coastal

Forest and Coastal lets you experience the very best hiking that Northland has to offer. We have selected three very different hikes to provide a wide range of walking experiences. The schedule below is the preferred intinary, however, it  may change based on weather (i.e. if showers are forecast then it may be better to walk in the Puketi forest -which provides shelter rather than one of the more exposed coastal tracks)


Day 1 (Whangaroa)  - Decribe Whangaroa + Aroha 

Day 2 (Puketi Forest) - Describe Puketi walk and Ngawha

Day 3 (Whangamumu) - Describe Haruru/Whanagmumu and evening activity Russell/Paihia/Waitangi

Included in the tour price is four nights accommodation at our waterside Bed and Breakfast. The tour is fully catered with home cooked evening meals, continental breakfasts and picnic lunches as required. 
Price from $1200 per person*
