The perfect blend: Experience the North Island's best hiking and taste local food and wine (the nosh!)

From lush native bush, waterfalls and rolling landscapes, to the pristine coastlines of New Zealand's Coromandel and Waikato regions, our unique itineraries combine pack-free day hikes with food and wine tasting experiences for small groups. 

A simple concept, but we think it's beautiful.

Our classic multi-day tours

Private group tours

Hiking. Eating. Tramping. Tasting. Walking. Savouring.

We live for exploring the tracks and trails across our beautiful country. Discovering those 'wow' moments
just around the corner or at the next vista. We'd love for you to experience what our land has to offer too.

Just pack your hiking boots, we'll take care of the rest!
