Overview

If you’re looking for a “real Bushman” experience, like most of our Adventurers, this multi-day Wangapeka Track hike in Kahurangi National Park at the top of New Zealand's South Island tops our list. Often called the "Original Heaphy Track", multiple climbs and mind-blowing views and scenery characterise this hike. Even the newest of hikers seeking challenging mountain climbs and majestic views will find our two climbs of 1087m and 1009m ideal.

Banish any feelings of stress or thoughts of work left behind as you take in the incredible scenery unfolding along the way and New Zealand’s past plotting around dense vegetation. Your Wangapeka Track hike experience will stay with you for a long time, and for good reason: You’ll hike through ancient beech forest, discover hidden valleys, walk across swingbridges spanning wild gorges, and enjoy round-the-compass views of the Kahurangi National Park and the South Island.

Fitness: This hike has 2 challenging climbs over the saddles, however the rest of the hike has a gradual climb with easy descents and magnificent views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. If unsure of your fitness, book the 4 day option.

Pick Ups: From the local iSites (Information or Visitor Centres)

Duration: 4 or 6 days
