    Waiheke Island
    Stop: 5 hours -
    This is our signature walk which runs every day, and it’s great in any weather. Experience the twin headlands of Matiatia and Church Bay on Waiheke Island, leaving from and returning to the ferry terminal. This guided walk is suitable for those who can walk five hours on hilly terrain. We begin your trip back to nature by greeting you as soon as you step off the ferry. Straight away you’ll be drawn in by the gorgeous scenery and beautiful coastal environment. Our guided walks are small and highly personal, so groups for this walk are limited to 12 people. Please book well in advance as this is one of our most popular walks and gets booked up!

    Our first day out after arriving in New Zealand was this beautiful hike around Waiheke Island with our lovely guide, Justine. She set a lively pace and checked on us often to make sure we were comfortable. Be sure to know this more of a hike than a walk, but no better way to see
