Cape Reinga: Te Paki costal track

Where do I even begin?

Whether you’re hiking into the wild intense dense backcountry bush or into a casual vitamin  D filled coastal walk, Northland New Zealand is where your happy place is!

Priceless, stunning and insanely beautiful are just a few words to describe what this magical region of NZ is. No need for filters, nor a fucking selfie stick (God.. I swear the next time I see someone with one..), Northland has every kind of hike you could ask for.

Cape Reinga, the utmost beautiful sensation, almost spiritual experience you will ever feel. Te Paki coastal track is part of New Zealand’s longest trail ( Te Araroa) covering a 3000km long distance! Te Paki can be covered quite comfortably over 3-4 days and will cover roughly about 48km. At the beginning of the track make sure to clean your boots with the provided sanitiser that prevents Kauri dieback disease from spreading.  http://www.kauridieback.co.nz/ should tell you all you need to know!

This stunning scenic track follows the rugged coastline of Cape Reinga and descends to Te Werahi and Twilight beaches and should not for one second be unappreciated! Depending on your fitness level you can choose to do the trail in sections or in 2 days if you’re a keen nutter.

Te Paki track offers an unforgettable experience and is also perfect photographers.Te Rerenga Wairua (Cape Reinga) and Te Paki are located at the northernmost area of New Zealand on the Aupouri Peninsula. If you’re lost just keep driving up! With self sufficient camping and no private costs, this hike is not just a cheap experience but a life changing one.

Always tell someone where you’re going and make sure to bring suitable clothing and gear… and don’t forget extra WATER!
