What to expect
From Hamilton, we wind our way around the east coast of the Coromandel, along cliff edges, discovering hidden bays along Pohutakawa lined edges. Enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch on the beach, dip your toes in the water before we make our way to Waihi Beach. Next is a visit to local award-winning Falls Retreat Bistro for a unique 'garden-to-plate' food experience, featuring fresh, seasonal morsels from the restaurant's huge garden. A glass of wine winds up our visit before we head back through the Karangahake Gorge. Heading back inland, it's time to visit the land of blueberries and icecream! A short blueberry farm tour at the Kowhai Creamery is followed by the hardest decision you'll have to make all day. Choosing the flavour of your handmade gelato! Made from full cream jersey cow milk fed on lush Waikato pastures, the award-winning blueberry gelato is hard to beat! • Fully-inclusive, guided experience • Runs: Wednesday, Friday and Saturday's • Departs: 7.30am from Hamilton Gardens • Returns: 5.30pm to Hamilton Gardens • Duration: 10 hours • Walk: 4 hours approx • Grade: Moderate • A good level of fitness is required for this tour. • Note: A minimum of 2 people are required for this tour to run

Girls Gourmet Tramping Escape - Pinnacles
Mar 2021
This was one of the highlights of my life to date. Kylie was such a warm, funny and caring guide and not to mention there is not much she doesn't know about our beautiful Country and the fauna and flora in it.

Our trip was a group of friends of all levels of fitness and Kylie made it all come together and looked after our needs.
Kylie was so prepared, ensured we were too and allowed us to have 3 days of making it our own experience.

I was there for personal achievement and some mental health time along with reconnecting with Nature and doing it all with great friends, in a way we could relax at the end of the night.

We had a full day at walking to the Pinnacles, the second day a breath taking Coastal walk and the the Third Day a small bush walk to experience a peaceful and beautiful water hole, along with gorgeous food at Weta Cafe and a visit to Coromandel Gin Distillery.

The food and drinks provided were top notch and the restaurant, cafes and the Gin Distillery we went to were fantastic too. I loved staying at the Tangiaro Kiwi Retreat, so peaceful, amazing service, great spas and the Chalets are incredible.

I hope to do this trip again and plan to do others with Nature and Nosh.
Thanks Kylie.

Great girls getaway
Mar 2021
Worth every cent!

I loved out three-day tour, we did the Pinnacles, a coastal walk from Stony Bay right up to Sugar Loaf point and then a nice wind-down walk on the third day with a river swim and even more food.

I couldn't eat for a day after I was still too full.

Kylie was an amazing guide and we all managed up the Pinnacles in no time, we got amazing weather so we had some epic views, everything was catered for so we only needed our water and rain jacket. Lunch was amazing and it was nice not to have to drive anywhere after and Kylie too us to the Tangiaro Kiwi Retreat.

The retreat was next level, no reception and such a beautiful location, everyone had their own lodge, which was huge with a super king bed and two bathrooms, a large kitchen and dining. We had dinner, breakfast and out lunches, all catered for here. The food and staff were both amaing.

The coastal walk was also a good one, we were allowed to make it as long or as short as we wanted. Everything on the trip can be customised to the needs or wants of your group and Kylie did a great job of this.

The third day was a wind-down so just a small walk up the river then off to lunch and gin tasting. Such a nice way to end a great weekend.

Im already looking to book my next trip for something a little more challenging!

Such special!
Dec 2020 • Couples
Oh my gosh, this is my absolute favorite tramping experience in my 6-yr life in New Zealand! Plus, we had been fed so well and our guide Kylie was the most caring and knowledgeable guide who also took great shots of you! Kylie managed to deliver the best itinerary as per the weather change and we wouldn’t have otherwise had this second-to-none experience. We got to know lovely people in our just-right small group who we spent our 3 days with. What we heard most often along the way was “beautiful” “brilliant” “amazing”. It’s a celebration tour for me and I was so well looked after. It’s not only about the views, the food, the people but the overall experience! It’s a no brainer for me to join another tour with Kylie. You shouldn’t miss out too if you have a thirst for adventure, love the big nature and great food!

Wonderful way to explore the hidden gem of Marokopa
Nov 2020
Our group of six friends spent a fantastic three day weekend exploring the hidden gem of Marokopa in the capable hands of Kylie, her family and our great guide Irene. Our baches by the sea, the fantastic food from Anita and great organisation made this weekend very special.
We loved the different hikes each day, lovely NZ bush and great views and fabulous whitebait fritters and juicy steaks for lunch courtesy of Kainui Lodge on Day 1.
Don't miss the Marokopa Falls and Natural Bridge
We would highly recommend this trip and the hospitality shown to us by the crew at Nature and Nosh.

Wonderful Marocopa tramp
Nov 2020 • Friends
Six of us just spent 4 days in Marocopa staying in 2 lovely baches by the water. We tramped over farmland one day then had well deserved lunch(think whitebait fritters!)up high in Kainui Lodge. The second tramp was longer and via Double Falls which involved some adventurous exploring! Both tramps led by our expert guide Irene, who kept us safe but challenged.
All meals were supplied and were superb from outstanding nibbles to beautiful packed lunches(think chicken skewers and scotch eggs), desserts, wraps, gluten-free options and lamb shanks.
Nothing was a problem for this team and we loved it. We would definitely use Nature and Nosh again as a travel group.

Awesome
Feb 2020
It’s hard to put into words the benefits of combining the 2 best things you can do in the great outdoors - stretch the legs and have a good “nosh up”.

Having said that, Kylie has got it spot on. The 7 day Coast & Cuisine trip we recently participated in was excellent - Rose the alpha leader was on the ball 24/7, totally organised, full of local knowledge and extremely capable at hosting us both on the track and at the table. Kylie came out to visit us and keep the wheels turning, and both the sights and eateries of the Coromandel Peninsula kept excelling themselves each day. Pretty hard to get a better combination!

As a bonus, the accommodation each night was, literally, brilliant. Two nights at each gives the bonus of been able to unpack, but the highlight has to be the fantastic catering each night coupled with the amazing locations - views right out over the Pacific & listening to the kiwis in the bush around the cabins are only scratching the surface of the ambience of the selected locations. Hard to see how this could be bettered........

1 Day Coast & Cuisine Experience
Feb 2020 • Couples
Incredible...both the beauty of New Zealand and the warm welcoming company with Kylie. To say thanks to her and her team, seems like a short-fall for yet another informative and beautiful hike filled with lasting memories. This was our second hiking experience with Nature and Nosh and my husband and I simply cannot wait to try a third ❤️!

Invigorating hike; stunning natural beauty; breathtaking photo ops; gourmet lunch; and a sure fire feeling we have just spent the day with a lifelong friend...and let’s not forget the post hike rewards to savour the days experience.

This was a must-do on our second visit to New Zealand and we were once again beyond satisfied!!!!

10 out 10 from your Canadian friends who simply cannot wait to return the adventure favour in our backyard.
