It's time to reconnect with nature, people and great food

We've crafted a limited series of off-the-beaten track escapes with our team of local guides. Each escape features a collection of their favourite day tramps and foodie experiences in either the Waikato or Coromandel.

  • Take on the great outdoors with one of our experienced local bush guides
  • Exclusive tastings, meet the maker and peek behind the closed doors of our passionate artisans
  • Think gourmet cheese, wine, ice-cream, cooking classes and more...
  • Tramping options for all levels
  • Charming country and water front boutique accommodation options
  • Limited to small groups of 6

Why the Guide Series?

We’re a family-run business inspired by our perfect day. A love for tramping AND tasting exceptionally good food! We’ve been running tramping and food experiences since 2017 and wanted to offer something really special to those looking for a reset after a less than ideal start to 2020.

So, we've created the guide series. A way for our incredible team of experienced tramping guides to enable Kiwi’s to get back to that connection we have with nature, great food and great people.
