Moderate fitness is required for the Coromandel Explorer Walk. The walking trails are of moderate difficulty, with some sections rated as hard. The trails range from well-formed paths to tracks broken with tree roots, rocks, mud and small stream crossings. Some of the walks can be varied slightly to provide easier options. Walking times vary between 3 to 7 hours per day. You will need to carry a daypack with your lunch, water, raincoat and warm layers.
The most challenging walk on this trip is the Pinnacles in the Kauaeranga Valley, which we normally tackle on Day 3. If you felt any walk was beyond you, we can find other things to keep you busy that day. Most of our guests find they have more than enough energy to complete this walk.
