Lake Waikaremoana: Which Walk Is Right For Me?

We offer two guided hiking tours in the Te Urewera area - but which one is right for you? 

The first, the Lake Waikaremoana Guided Walk, is a 4-day, 3 night hut-to-hut guided hike along the full Lake Waikaremoana Great Walk track. We begin at the Hopuruahine end and finish off at Onepoto. We have a dedicated support boat to transport gear and food so you don’t have to carry a heavy pack!

The second is the Lake Waikaremoana Discovery Tour. Also 4 days, 3 nights but we stay in a comfortable, basic lodge just a 5-minute drive from Lake Waikaremoana. We head out from the lodge each morning to do day walks in Te Urewera. Those walks include the best parts of the Great Walk track as well as waterfalls, cave systems and clear private springs.

So, if you’re at a stage in life where you enjoy more of the home comforts, and you’re well past the era of DoC Huts, then the Discovery Tour is the one for you. Enjoy a hot shower at the end of the day, your own private, quiet room (no snorers) and a comfortable bed with not a plastic mattress in sight.
