New Great Bar­rier 4-day walks

Walking New Zealand - - Walk Talk -

Any­one who has the NZ Great Walks on their bucket list has prob­a­bly come across Walk­ing Leg­ends guides, who for the last 15 years have ded­i­cated them­selves to mas­ter­ing the ex­pe­ri­ences with top notch ser­vice and in-depth sto­ries on all the North Is­land clas­sic hikes. This com­ing sum­mer sea­son they add an­other “very ex­cit­ing” des­ti­na­tion - Great Bar­rier Is­land! Just a 30 minute flight from Auck­land the Bar­rier has a pow­er­ful sense of a tropical is­land with white sand beaches, palm forests and lofty vol­canic peaks with views of the end­less blue Pa­cific. The tropical feel some­how blends per­fectly with a laid-back kiwi cul­ture of years ago. Tramp­ing is a per­fect fit on the Bar­rier and each day of­fers unique land­scapes: sparkling blue coves, sub-tropical forests, wet­lands, hot springs and wind-swept vol­canic domes. “Great Bar­rier has been on our radar since we started”, says Robert Franklin of Walk­ing Leg­ends. “The lo­gis­tics that go with op­er­at­ing on a re­mote is­land were a lit­tle in­tim­i­dat­ing at first but we’re con­fi­dent we’ve put to­gether a trip that lives up to our typ­i­cal high stan­dards.” Walk­ing Leg­ends 4-day trips to Great Bar­rier Is­land begin in Oc­to­ber, and are al­ready be­ing “snapped up” by their past walk­ers. They have set de­par­ture dates that are per­fect for sin­gles and cou­ples to join, or they can run pri­vate trips for small groups. For more info see: www.Walk­ingLe­
