Transport: How do we get there?
All all packages are bespoke so we can either arrange transport for you from Hamilton, Cambridge, Te Awamutu or surrounding areas, or you and the team can meet us at Maungatautari. Although we base our packages primarily around Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari (20 minutes from Cambridge) we can also create a package for you at a different location within the Waikato or Coromandel accessing one of the over 20 walking tracks we operate on, or visiting one of the several artisan foodie producers we have great relationships with.
Rain / weather policy
We will go ahead with the agreed programme if there is rain on the day(s), as long as it is safe to do so. If your group has booked the bush boardroom for a session, we will make a call no later than 2 hours before this session whether to move it into the covered (open-faced) events centre in the Southern Enclosure.
We know that not everyone will be experienced when it comes to the outdoors and hiking, and that's fantastic. Getting a little out of comfort zone in safe hands is what it's all about. We can cater to most fitness levels and abilities and will work within your groups capabilities. As a rough guideline, individuals should be able to walk for an hour continuously with some steep incline at gentle pace.
Sanctuary Mountain tracks all have gradients which makes wheelchair access difficult or impossible, depending on the ability of the person using the chair, their supporters and the sort of chair. The tracks are metalled but not smooth so it can take quite a lot of strength to move a wheelchair. There is an unavoidable gradient down to the entrance through the fence. We would like to be more accessible but the terrain makes this difficult and, being a Charitable Trust, we need to find funding for any alterations and additions.
