Nearly every time we have friends to stay we take them on a "Tiki Tour" of the Napier and Hastings area. We often drive our visitors up to the top of Te Mata Peak.

what a beautiful area! We came here only for sunset and I was so disappointed we didn't have more time to explore the many trails here, seems like it could easily be an all day activity. Beautiful views of the peaks and napier from the summit.

I liked the awesome views and the serene environment. I also liked the greenery around. The road to the peak is narrow so drive carefully and give way. We climbed to the highest point. We also sat there on the grass and absorbed the environment.
