Do you love exploring nature and keeping active while on holiday? Do you enjoy sampling food and wine and meeting some of the local people behind the delicious offerings?
Our new one day EXPERIENCES are a beautiful pairing of hiking and tasting in Nature & Nosh style for those who are only visiting for a short time.
And gosh we are excited to be able to finally launch them.
Our two new experiences both operate out of the Waikato region, departing from the beautiful Hamilton Gardens daily from Monday through to Saturday during our season running 1 October until late May.
Each experience includes a 3-4 hour guided morning walk, gourmet picnic-style lunch and two visits to local artisan food producers, bistro’s or wineries. Of course, transport, snacks and local guides are all included.
A lovely mix of walking some of our favourite tracks and enjoying our afternoon guilt-free as we sample tastes of the region, we really can’t think of a better way to spend a day with a small group of new friends.
All you need to bring is your boots and suitable hiking attire, we’ll take care of the rest.
Without further ado, we would like to introduce you to: Explore & Taste AND Coast & Cuisine...
Explore and taste with us!
Hike to the top of the highest waterfall in the North Island for majestic views over the Waikato basin. Visit the pristine Blue Spring and stroll along the tranquil banks of Te Waihou before enjoying a gourmet picnic-style lunch. Sample some award-winning local cheese and visit a family owned and operated winery (also award-winning because we produce delicious food and wine here in the Waikato!).
From coast to cuisine and everything inbetween
Escape to the beach for one of our favourite coastal walks, exploring white-sand bays, turquoise waters and endless views. Taste seasonal offerings from a special bistro in the gorge with an award-winning chef and enjoy their impressive gardens full of fresh ingredients – pick and taste! Finish the afternoon off with blueberries and icecream. The hardest decision you’ll have to make all day is choosing a flavour…
How to choose between experiences? We couldn’t possibly. The only option is to stay and try both.
