The Bucket List Walk is the greatest 12-day North Island hiking journey you’ll ever do. We’ll show you the top 3 North Island hiking areas back-to-back; the Coromandel Peninsula, Lake Waikaremoana and the Tongariro National Park over 12 fantastic days. We’ll tick off 18 hiking trails, over 61 trail hours covering between 110-120km (that’s 72 miles), climbing around 2,760 vertical metres. Now that’s an achievement!
You’ll see a broad sample of North Island hiking environments, from the glittering Coromandel coastlines to the lush, inland fern forests of Lake Waikaremoana all the way to the sparse, moon-like landscapes of Tongariro National Park. Each leg of the trip is unique with scenery that contrasts beautifully, you’ll be bowled over by just how green and lush the North Island can be. You’ll be able to mix and mingle with lots of different walkers throughout the trip as each four-day leg welcomes new walkers and guides.
This is the perfect North Island guided hiking tour itinerary for those walkers wanting an authentic Kiwi outdoor experience, perfectly designed to get you to the big North Island walks in comfort and style with local folks who know how to do it.
