Don your favourite pair of sneakers and escape to real New Zealand as you walk the last frontier. Straddling the northern tip of the peninsula, the Coromandel Coastal Walkway is a true-blue Kiwi destination.

It's a walk that rivals any New Zealand Great Walk - but hardly anyone knows about it. Dramatic bluffs fall into crashing seas.
New Zealand is well known for its spectacular day walks and The Coromandel is home to some of the best panoramic coastal views New Zealand’s north island has to offer. The Coromandel Coastal Walkway is one of my favourite short walks, with its spectacular views and a relatively easy hike to get to them!
Hiking makes you strong. And it doesn't just work your legs. Clambering over uneven surfaces and navigating your way around rocks, fallen trees, across streams and over tree roots engages your core and works your upper body for a true holistic work out.
Undertaking the Coastal Walkway as a family excursion is a New Zealand Must-Do. Because of its rugged isolation, remote beauty and lack of distraction, the experience as a family is guaranteed to bond your group, making memories to last a lifetime.
The Kauaeranga Kauri Trail, or Pinnacles Walk inspires great expectations and a lofty sense of anticipation, not least because of its name. It is one of New Zealand’s great walks and can be achieved in a single day.
I left the Kauaeranga Valley feeling like I’d done something tremendous - feeling bigger and bolder than before I arrived, but more humble too. I was a beginner there. A novice in nature’s playground with fumbling feet and awkward arms. Yet I couldn’t have loved it more.
