Northland

Northland
Most of Te Araroa’s through-walkers will start their epic journey at Cape Reinga at the northern end of the North Island. It’s a spiritual place, so very fitting for what lies ahead. The Far North is a remote region with long, lonely stretches of sand facing the Tasman Sea and forests of dense bush, steep hills and fast-rising rivers. The relaxed and touristy towns on the Pacific Ocean side provide a perfect contrast and comfort for the weary tramper - showing off the classic kiwi lifestyle in which seaside holidays are a birth right. The trail includes everything from cruisey beach walks to rigorous back country hikes. The challenges include crossing several bodies of water where the choices might include waiting for low tide, pack floating or appealing to a friendly boatie.
