We Hike at least Twice Per Week

Join us twice a week, every Wednesday and Thursday, as we embark on thrilling tramping adventures, with occasional weekend getaways and multi-day tramps that will leave you in awe. For those who prefer two wheels over two feet, keep an eye out for our cycling trips that we organize from time to time.

Current Program

Start times

For tramps are 7.30 am on Wednesday and 8.00 am on Thursday, unless noted otherwise under the particular tramp. The van will leave promptly at the appointed time. The letter in brackets, for example. (A), relates to the van recovery rate.

Fitness/Trip Grading

A tramp on fairly level formed tracks, duration 4+ hours, and where there is usually the  option of returning by the same track.

A tramp of 4 – 6 hours, often on less well formed tracks or on off-track routes, can involve river crossings or short sections of steep terrain.

Can be over 6 hours duration, tramping on either formed tracks or off track routes, river crossings, steep terrain, snow conditions or high altitudes.
