Te Araroa – Section By Section

As it stands I’m currently up to my third stint on the Te Araroa as a kiwi section hiker. To date I’ve hiked the 2012-2013, 2014-2015, and 2015-2016 seasons. I have a complete set of posts (searchable through categories) of the 2014-2015 season, am currently working on 2015-2016 posts, and will go back to resurrecting my 2012-2013 season in posts at a later date.

The sections I’ve covered so far include; Cape Reinga – Waitomo, Tongariro Crossing, Palmerston North – Levin, Wellington City, Picton – St Arnaud, Tekapo – Twizel, Wanaka – Motutapu Track, Franklin – Queenstown, and other bitsy bobs….

I’ll use this page to post quick links to posts most useful about the trail, namely planning, so its always easy to access and find and won’t get lost down the blog feed. Hope it is of use to people and if there is anything else anyone might like to see here, that I may know, or have to share, to help others just let me know 🙂

Also, any thoughts if you have them are welcome and also I’m happy to answer any questions 🙂

Happy Hiking!!! 🙂
