We are Northland's first three-day private unguided walk. Situated at Whangarei Heads our boutique walk encompasses private farmland, stunning ocean and harbour beaches, rural roads, recreational reserves and public walkways. Start each day from our immaculately presented lodge and walk through an amazing variety of landscapes. At the end of the day return for a delicious dinner prepared by us and cooked by you. This outstanding natural experience will leave you with lasting memories.

We arrived at the Claire's lodge to find that there were no other guests for the duration of our stay. Although it is nice to meet people with a shared interest in walking, it was luxurious to have this beautiful lodge on our own for 3 nights. Claire was a marvellous host providing wonderful food for the duration of our... More

What an unexpected surprise to discover a pod of 30 or so dolphins in the shallow shoreline surf. The sky was approaching dusk at 8:30pm and we enjoyed the long days of sun compared to our USA winter dusk at 5:30pm.

Stayed in March and had the lodge to ourselves. Beautifully thought out lodge has everything you need including the outdoor bathtub. Claire was a wonderful host and her food was fantastic. Being able to have healthy breakfasts and walk lunches is great too. Day 2 walk was hard but the reward was seeing lots of Dolphins at smugglers cove when... More

The Mt Manaia walk was the shortest, had... More

This is a great little walk and you can do a round trip which includes Busby Head. Never many people at the Cove and it is easy to find a tree to sit under to avoid the sun. Best to avoid this area in a strong wind from the southerly quarter as it is exposed but OK in anything from... More

Claire our hostess also provided excellent advice and chaffeured us to and from the start of our chosen tracks. The walking experiences varied in many ways and were easy or challenging depending on your preference. The native bush,... More
