Overview

Enter the Whirinaki Forest Park and marvel at the primeval native podocarp forest that is one of the most magnificent in the world. In this Full Day Whirinaki Forest Loop Trek from Rotorua in New Zealand, you will also learn about the guardian of the Whirinaki Valley, Hineruarangi.

Leaving Murupara, we drive 30 minutes to Minginui, a predominantly Maori settlement close to the start of the trek. We follow a loop trail as we enter the forest and walk under towering podocarp trees like toromiro, matai, rimu, kahikatea and more. As you walk, experience the forest teeming with the sounds of native birdlife such as tui, bellbirds, kaka, kereru and fantails. Take a break at a scenic waterfall for lunch.

Transfers are available from Rotorua upon arrangement or from the Department of Conservation Office in Murupara on State Highway 38. At least two people needed to book. (A minimum 2-person rate applies to treks organised even for only one person.)

Depending on the group, this trek can be completed in 4-5 hours on gentle to moderately graded well-formed trails. This trek operates from October to May. Bookings are essential.
