Partner with Te Araroa Trail

Partner with a national icon

Te Araroa is one of the top long walks in the world. CNN and National Geographic have both praised the trail's scenic beauty and its connection to New Zealand communities, cultures and history. During the 2019-2020 walking season, the number of people walking the entire length of the trail exceeded 1,200 for the first time. Hundreds of thousands more walked individual sections.

Te Araroa Trust is the kaitiaki for the trail.

As a partner of the trail, you help us develop, promote and manage it. 

As the popularity of the trail grows, Te Araroa Trust depends on the generous support of partners and sponsors. You help us to improve the trail experience and ensure the future of Te Araroa. You help us develop alternative routes to minimise road walking sections. You improve the information we provide to walkers and other trail stakeholders. And you help us develop the infrastructure the growing numbers of walkers need.

You’ll be in a unique position to reach a broad community of Te Araroa walkers and supporters, both domestic and international.

We will recognise your contribution with:

  • branding on Te Araroa’s website and promotional materials
  • profile on our website and our social media channels
  • invitations to Te Araroa events, and
  • access to an audience of thousands of walkers, hundreds of businesspeople and an untold number of supporters
