The walks range from a very easy going beach stroll to the challenging Te Whara/ Bream Head hike.  This variety of trails allow you to enjoy some of the most stunning scenery around the Whangarei Heads. The Te Whara/Bream Head walk is rated as one of the top 6 day walks in New Zealand. The Mount Manaia walk is one of only 14 top short walks in the country. This walk will take you about 1.5 hours and the views are out of this world!

In addition, you can use one of our private walking trails with direct access to the Te Araroa National walkway.

We provide you with comprehensive information on all walks and hikes and will help you plan your active weekend.

Furthermore, we will also take care of all the catering, leaving you to enjoy the evenings socialising with your friends. Our chef only uses fresh seasonal produce and free-range meats! We can cater to any specific dietary requirements as well.
