Lake Waikaremoana Guided Walk, New Zealand - 4 Days

Description:

A Journey deep into a land cloaked in mist, mysticism and primordial forest. This is a hut-to-hut hike around the beautiful Lake Waikaremoana, with wonderful beaches, fascinating history and breathtaking views.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Itinerary:

Day1:

10.5 kms, 4 hours walking (Lunch, Dinner)

Journey through remote villages and dense rainforest, into the heart of Te Urewera National Park and the secluded Lake Waikaremoana. Beautiful lakeside walking, alongside a Kiwi reserve, to reach the first hut in the late afternoon.

Day 2:

18.3 kms, 6-8 hours walking (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

This is the longest day of walking, but you still have plenty of time to enjoy the bush, birds and lovely beaches of the western arm of the lake.

Day 3:

7.6 kms, 4-5 hours walking (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Height gain 600 metres

Today you tackle the Panekire Bluffs, which have been looming ahead for the last two days. Plenty of rest stops and breathtaking views make today's climb an enjoyable challenge.

Day 4:

8.8 kms, 4-5 hours walking (Breakfast, Lunch)

Wake to be among the first in the world to welcome the day's sunrise over the Pacific Ocean! Continuing along the Panekire Ridge, breaks in the forest offer more magnificent views and fantastic photo opportunities from the colossal rock ledges that form the range. Look across Onepoto Bay to see the evidence of the landslide that created Lake Waikaremoana over two thousand years ago.
