Te Araroa -

New Zealand's Trail

Te Araroa is New Zealand's Trail - taking in spectacular New Zealand landscapes from beaches to volcanoes to forests to cities.

The 3000km route stretching from Cape Reinga in the North of New Zealand to Bluff in the South was officially opened December 3rd, 2011 by the Governor-General of New Zealand, Sir Jerry Mateparae.

Te Araroa is the greatest New Zealand adventure there is - and should be on every Kiwi's bucket list.

Walk it all, walk it in your lifetime, walk New Zealand - walk Te Araroa!
